Hello and Welcome to my little blog.
My name is Kate and I’ve been baking for a few years now. I had no-one to show me how to bake so I have been teaching myself how to do things along the way. I’ve used book and TV programmes as well as baking blogs and other internet sites.
This is partly what inspired me to start writing this blog. As a self-taught amateur baker, I know how annoying it is when someone tells you to “cream” something and you don’t know what to do, or if they say the mix needs to resemble breadcrumbs but you aren’t sure if yours looks quite right. So, I try to write my recipes simply with plenty of explanation, tips, tricks and, most importantly, step-by-step photos along the way so that you know what it is supposed to look like at every stage of the recipe. Basically, I’m trying to provide what I couldn’t always find for myself!
Along the way I am learning more about baking as well as creating my own recipes and discovering more about food photography which is something I’m definitely still trying to improve for this blog.
I hope you find something you like here and maybe even a recipe you fancy trying out. Please do get in touch and let me know if you give anything a go – I’m always so happy to hear from people who have successfully used a recipe of mine!
Thank you for having a look around and I hope to see you on here again soon.
