Hi, I’m Jen and I love to bake. Most things really, but cakes are a firm favourite. This is me:
After spending many-a-time flicking through my iPhone photos saying “I made something like that once…”, I decided it was about time to step things up a level and put all my creations together in one place.
So here we are. A lot of cakes, a lot of photos, and behind the scenes one very sticky kitchen, shared with a boyfriend and two ever-hungry kittens happy to taste anything sent their way.
The kittens in question – although born in August 2011 they’re pretty much fully fledged cats now – are probably my biggest fans. Or at least, they spend the most time staring at me with adoring eyes whenever I’m in the kitchen! As with a lot of pets, they are fully-fledged hoovers, and will try anything that falls onto the floor during cooking.
They are called Chilli and Pepper – Chilli is the black and white to the right, and Pepper is the grey tabby on the left. 2 sisters who we adopted from the brilliant RSPCA in Derby.
They also enjoy tea with their cake – and you can see how teeny they were when we first got them:
And this is Rob:
He too, eats most things. Sometimes he stares at me adoringly too. He is a painter and decorator, bass player in a band, and certified cake tester. Dislikes: cleaning the kitchen after I’ve been baking; buying ingredients (and supermarket shopping as a whole).
I hope you enjoy my blog – maybe find some inspiration, learn something, or just enjoy what we’ve been up to.
