My name is Isabel and I am a stay at home mother of two children. I love coffee and what goes hand in hand with a freshly brewed cup……desserts. When I have the time I love to bake. When I bake I am at a peaceful place ( my own little world). I never baked until I married.
My background is Italian and my husband is German( a pretty good mix). My mother-in-law is a fantastic baker, so in a way I should give her some credit. I felt as though I had to rise to the occasion and meet her baking standards. At first my cakes would be runny, the tiers were uneven and they always would slide off (making a huge mess, when trying to impress guests). With determination on getting the recipes right and remembering my Grade 6 teacher saying ” Keep it up, Practice makes Perfect“ . I finally achieved what I was aiming for.
So now I am hooked on baking, I love to try new recipes. I still get anxiety when looking at a 3 page difficult recipe, but it sparks a fire in me to try it out and see how it turns out. I hope you enjoy my “little masterpieces” that I post. My goal is to try to post at least 1 or 2 new pictures a week. So keep visiting and please ‘like’ what you see and ‘follow’ if you want to see more.
