About

Baking is a hobby I have been wanting to pick up for years, but had somehow always found reasons to procrastinate. Until one fateful evening, when I was out celebrating my birthday with a few friends, and one friend showed me a picture of a beautiful rainbow cake covered in torched meringue, baked by his very talented (then) 12-year-old nephew! That very night, I came home and bought the oven I had been eyeing for years.

That was in September 2013, and it was one of the best investment I have made!

My earliest and fondest memories of baking was when I was little and I got to spend a lot of time with my grandmother who was an incredibly talented and passionate home baker. I remember the aromas that filled the whole house every time she baked her delicious marbled butter cake or scrumptious sausage rolls. I loved to “help out” whenever she baked, in exchange for a chance to lick the sugary batter or get first dibs on whatever came out of the oven.

Growing up, I was never much of a “kitchen” person. In fact, before going away to college, my mother had to give me a crash course in frying eggs! Even now, when I meet my friends from way back, they find it amusing that my kitchen is now the favourite space in my apartment.

Perfectionist by nature with a sweet tooth nurtured through the years, my quest for the perfect bakes have grown into a passion I never thought I would experience. And what they say about bakers is true – we love to share the good things! Not just the end results, but also the tips and experience we picked up along the way. So, here I am. I am happy to answer any questions you may have on my posts and I sincerely hope I can help you find your baking inspiration too.
