Life is short.... eat cake first

Baking Is My Passion

My love for cooking started when I was 9 years old and I have not looked back since. I developed a special passion for baking and confectionary and I love creating cakes, pastries and desserts. Please join me on my culinary journey!

Let Me Inspire You

 Baking is inspiring and an act of creativity. Engaging in small acts of creativity regularly can reduce stress, increase happiness, and increase life enthusiasm. Personal growth can also be achieved through creative acts.

From birthday cakes to cup cakes and carrot cakes - and everything in between.




Pastries can be made from five types of pastry dough - flaky, shortcrust, puff, choux, and filo.

All your favourite desserts in one place - from apple pie, brownies, cheesecake, Crème Brûlée and more.

Baking is a very peaceful and good form of therapy, and the end result produces wonderful desserts, cakes and pastries. 

It allows you to focus your mental energy on simple (and complicated) physical motions, and helps you get into a zone where other distractions and stressors start to evaporate. 

You will feel more connected to yourself and what you are creating, which can be very uplifting.
