I’m a lover of baking and cooking, and if I’m honest generally just enjoying food and drink! I am always somewhat torn between a love of baking and sweet treats and trying to eat healthily and not pile on the pounds (which can be an unwanted side effect of being a cake lover). Due to this you’ll see that while posting recipes for some lovely cakes, I will also throw in some healthier bakes and meal recipes which I have tried in my attempt to justify the cake consumption!
I am a wife and a Mummy to a 2 year old boy, trying to juggle a busy job 4 days a week and wrangling a toddler the rest of the time. I’ve found it much more difficult to squeeze in the time for baking since becoming a Mum, but that means when I am able to spend some time in the kitchen it feels like a real treat to get some ‘me’ time!
I’m also the Organiser for the Cheshire South branch of Clandestine Cake Club. I was a member of the Bolton branch when we lived in Lancashire and when we relocated to Cheshire I volunteered as organiser for the Nantwich club to get it up and running again and to meet some new like minded people in our new local area. I can’t recommend these clubs enough to anyone who has an interest in baking. It’s been a great experience for me and I’ve met loads of lovely people through the club.
It’s quite hard to decide what else to put on here, as I don’t know what information people would want to know about me (or if they’d want to know anything at all!) so if you want to know anything else, please just ask!
