Hi, I’m The Cake Lady. Baker and maker of all things sweet and fancy. A collector of notebooks, lover of lazy days and obsessed with road trips and getaways.
I initially set out to develop this blog with the intention of showcasing some of my wonderful cakes and bakes that I have had the pleasure of making for some of my friends and family.
However … things changed during the Covid-19 pandemic.
I have underlying health issues so I was sent home from work for a few weeks to self-isolate whilst this pandemic rides itself out.
Being at home all day everyday came with more added respsibilities – not only was I dealing with homeschooling for my two primary school children, it also meant three sets of meals I had to cook: breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was in my kitchen all day, preparing food and feeding my family that I decided to post some of my meals on my Instagram page (I don’t normally post food on my Instagram page unless it’s cake related). I had so many great comments about how great my food looked and I should have a food blog to share some of these recipes. So I thought, why not? I had a blog website anyway – which to be fair I was struggling to keep up with and not really finding any inspiration to post great content.
So a re-vamp was in order … I totally changed this website – chucked out the old and started anew. And now I am here today.
The idea of the blog is the same as it always was … sharing a glimpse of my life. From adventures away from home, baking and cooking recipes and all manner or weird and wonderful things that are my life. I hope you enjoy it here, have a look around and let me know what you think.
Any comments, ideas and suggestion to improve this website are greatly appreciated.
Much love to you all.
