When I was young, I used to envy my friends who would sit down to a proper roast lunch every Sunday.

I am a big fan of Scandinavian design, but perhaps an even bigger fan of Scandinavian baking. We are fortunate to be able to travel to Denmark and Sweden regularly, and my favourite pastime when we are there is to visit all of my favourite cafés and bakeries, plus any new ones that have popped up since our previous visit. High on the agenda is to squeeze in as many Cinnamon Buns and Cardamom Buns each day at breakfast!

Even if I wasn’t planning on buying cinnamon donuts, just the smell of the hot cinnamon wafting through the air was usually enough to make me join the queue.
