A Little About Me

If you want to support me and my small business, take a look at my Etsy page!

I have always had a passion for baking. Right back to when I was a kid in my nan’s kitchen helping her bake butterfly cakes and her classic bread pudding (best thing in the world). Since then, my interest for food only grew. Growing up, I would binge watch Food Network on TV and help my nan bake after school rather than doing my homework. Then in secondary school I took Food Tech for one of my GCSE’s, and it was here that I knew I wanted to bake for a living
