Welcome to my blog!
My name is Nicola and I’m a self proclaimed expert in all things sweet.
I absolutely love baking and experimenting in the kitchen. I grew up watching our Mum in the kitchen, baking and creating some of the most delicious baked goods that would make our friends and extended family jealous!
Baking became something of a therapy in recent years as our Mum became ill and the process of making some cupcakes or a crumble was an escape from reality for all of us during very difficult times.
Now, baking is the way that I remember my Mum and each time I put on an apron or switch on the mixer, I feel a little bit closer to her. I can only hope that with practice I’ll get to be as good as her someday!
I hope that through this blog I can share with you a snapshot of my baking successes (and failures too!).
I also hope that I can share with you some recipes and tips to make great cakes, cupcakes and more.
I’m always interested in hearing your feedback and ideas for what I could bake next! Your comments are very welcome! Alternatively, feel free to pop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
