“A party without cake is really just a meeting”
– Julia Child
My baking journey began when I was wee and my grandma taught me how to cream butter and sugar to make the fluffiest butterfly cupcakes. And yes, I always licked the wooden spoon. Fast forward 20 years to my time as a cafe owner, perfecting techniques by making passionfruit, lime and coconut and flourless chocolate cakes over and over again. And from these cakes displayed in the cafe’s cabinets came requests for celebration cakes. Birthday cakes. Wedding cakes.
I love the scientific challenge that comes with baking, but it’s the creative process that’s a joy, beautiful centrepieces inspired by and made for the people they celebrate.
