Please enjoy reading Alice’s fictional story about setting up her Recipe blog.

Alice is a keen baker and photographer, she could probably win the Great British Bakeoff.
Her Hundreds and Thousands cupcakes went down such a storm at the local fayre, winning not just the “Tastiest Cupcake” award but a photography prize as well.
Her picture was so well received that she got numerous requests for the photo and the recipe that she wants to put the recipe on her new blog and the picture on Pexels

Part 4 - Easter Cake with Sprinkles
Just the other day it was Alice’s friend Bob’s birthday. She doesn’t really communicate with Bob to often; they feel their words are best not transmitted over any medium. That’s not to say it’s anything nefarious or naughty, but they just like their privacy.
However! Bob, much to Alice’s astonishment, requested Alice’s birthday cake recipe as he’d enjoyed it so. He wanted to share it with some friends. Alice, being Alice, having a nice new blog, decided to put the recipe up there for everyone to see.
