I’m South African born, live in England and have a passion for Italy, its culture, language and food.
Ah yes, food. I do love to bake. I find baking sometimes relaxing, sometimes challenging, almost always creative. And for a small amount of effort and not a lot of financial outlay, it’s possible to produce something wonderful which gives pleasure to family and friends.
The idea behind this blog is to showcase the cakes I’ve made as well as provide inspiration (I hope) through recipes and suggestions, hints and tips. I’ve been baking for a long time (see my first post) and feel I’ve acquired a wealth of knowledge via reading cookery books and experimenting.  I hope to use this blog to encourage, to share, to demonstrate, to inspire and to be inspired. Join me.

    I’m loving this blog, although my one complaint is that now I am (a) hungry and (b) craving chocolate cake. Or lemon drizzle cake. Or grendailla cake. Let’s face it – I WANT CAKE!!!!!
    Keep up the good work.

    So glad you’re enjoying – spread the word. Let’s get the nation baking! Or at least drooling. I’m planning a blind tasting session in the near future to determine whether cakes made with butter really taste better than those made with Stork. I trust I can rely on you to assist?
