How has your blog changed from when you ﬁrst started?
I started it a few years back when i was struggling physically and wanted to be creative while at home. This was at a time I decided to go vegan too. Since then, its become a business for me, working with companies all around the world, making cakes and bakes for parties… it’s a dream come true!
I’ve always loved baking since I was around four years old (back then I think I just liked making a big mess in the kitchen – ha ha!). Now I have a strong passion for everything baking and cooking. I love to see how you can create a beautiful dessert/dinner from scratch! Plus, it’s really fun!
How do you make your blog stand out?
I work 24-7 on my website and try to make it friendly for everyone to visit, vegan or non-vegan. I have a strong passion for food photography too, even though I only really picked up a camera around three years ago.
What’s the best bake you’ve ever made?
Ooh, from people telling me and from what I tasted myself, I think it’ll have to be my Biscoff cake! It went down a storm.
What’s the best bake you’ve ever eaten?
To be honest, all of my cakes are my favourite! I’ll just have to go with anything with coffee in it: Y-U-M!
What are the best collaborations you’ve worked on?
I think that would have to be working with companies such as Kitchenaid, Smeg, Wilton… just a few of my favourite companies that I’ve had the privilege to work with!
Do you think bloggers need their own industry association?
