About Me

What can I say?? I just love to bake!! Ever since I would go to Grandma's house as a little girl and bake highlight cakes or help Ninny make her famous vanilla cookies, I've been obsessed with baking! Not only from recipe books, but freestyle too! With a father as a chef, i suppose it is in my genes! Some of my favourite memories from growing up were those moments after dinner when my dad would get his sweet tooth pang and have me help him whip up a batch of toffee fruit kebabs, or irish caramels! I used to love how he never followed recipes, he always just knew what ingredients worked with one another and how to play with quantities. So, from an early age, i had learnt from the master and i was well on my way to bake on my own! When i was 7 years old, i used to bake chocoloate cakes to sell to the mothers of my friends when they came to watch our Saturday morning minkey hockey games! Before i knew it, i was being commissioned from my school teachers to bake cakes for them at $2 a pop! This blog holds just a few of my favourite tried and tested recipes which I've thoroughly enjoyed both baking and eating! So enjoy!!

The 'Ladies who Lunch' Cupcake

My Vanilla Cupcakes with Bows - created for the Ladies Charity Afternoon Tea and Frock Swap 2011!

**Recipe for cupcakes in earlier blogs.
I used a white chocolate ganache under my pink fondant icing to create a smooth effect; and black fondant icing for my bows.

  1. Bri, these look utterly amazing. And so fabulously you! I now want to go out and invest in a decent mixer, so I can make all your recipes :D xx
