I started this blog back in 2013. Back then I was an avid ‘Sunday Baker’ and was excited to get in the kitchen every Sunday and then share the cakes with mine or my husbands colleagues, friends and family.
Quite a bit has changed in 3 years. The most significant change was when I decided to quit sugar at the beginning of 2015. Not craving the sweet white stuff meant my urge to get in the kitchen and cook with it declined. I haven’t given up on all sugar completely (that would be insane..ha) but I have cut the majority of the refined stuff out of my diet and try to keep natural sugar as low as I can.
I still make the delicious cakes and treats, but I find it extremely hard to bake something and not try it – I mean, would you trust someone to make you a cake if they hadn’t tried it to make sure it tastes good?! So now I try to bake refined sugar free treats instead which is what you will see starting to appear more regularly on here. It seems the sugar free way of life is catching on and more and more people are asking me about it. And most of the time people won’t even realise it’s a ‘sugar free’ recipe.
Another thing that happened due to starting this blog was personal requests. Amazingly I got so many requests to make cakes for birthdays and weddings. I was so overwhelmed with it and pushed myself each time to make better and better creations. I love that a simple cake can give someone so much pleasure. I love the creative work and I love being able to please someone with something that comes very naturally to me.
With the above in mind, I am continuing this blog to show you that anyone can bake. I try to break everything down so you can easily follow what I do and create it yourself – you’ll feel a great sense of achievement when you have finished and it looks and tastes amazing!
I’m not a professional and I don’t always get it right (I had a massive fail recently when I tried to make dairy free custard!). That’s not why I write this blog. I just want to give people the confidence to bake. I love it when people post pictures of their masterpieces onto my Facebook page – I feel their pride!
So I may not post as much as I did when this blog first started, but what I do post is worth giving a go.
