About

Who Am I?

Katie.

I eat, travel & bake way too much.

I’m a self-taught home baker, born & bred in sunny South Wales who has a big love of tea & carbs.

Fact: I own more loaf tins & lipsticks than I do pairs of underwear.

Favourite Ingredients?

I have a deep & profound love of honey that would rival Pooh himself.

White chocolate.

Cinnamon & mixed spiceĀ (a love that probably stemmed from childhood Welsh cakes).

Almonds, pistachios & walnuts.

Tea.cropped-favicon.pngFavourite Foods?

Bread.

The staff of life, ’nuff said.

It’s been a welcome staple in my life since childhood, passed onto me by my carb loving family.

Give me any bakery & I’m guaranteed to leave with a sweet bun or a crusty loaf.

My Inspiration?

My small library of recipe books, deeply treasured (especially Delia, obviously).

My mam, who used to make the most epic birthday cakes when I was little.

Travel, it’s mainly about the food right?

cake-sliceMy Advice?

Don’t give up, nothing comes out perfect the first time you make it (if it does, you can just go away now), just practice.

People don’t care what it looks like, anyone will eat free cake.

Just tell people that’s how it’s supposed to look.
