About Me

My photo
Hi all! My name is Becca and I am a 21 year old from Berkshire, England with an interest in all things cake. I have only been baking for the past couple of years and if someone had told me 5 years ago that I would be a passionate cake maker at the age of 21, I'm afraid to say I probably would have laughed in their face! I have had many cake disasters in the past (including a Barbie cake for my friend's 16th Birthday that was still raw in the middle when she cut into it...) However one Christmas I opened my stocking to find a Giant Cupcake making kit, and hey presto, my love for all things sweet emerged. I have developed this blog as a way of sharing my baking experiences with others. I love to read other baking blogs, you can learn so much from them and discover some great new ideas. Plus I just love looking at photos of yummy scrummy cakey goodness ;) (possibly a touch of 'food pornography' going on there!) Whilst I am still on a massive learning curve with my baking, I will share any tips I have with you as well! Thanks for popping by! Love Becca xxx

General Blogging

If I am going to really get into this blogging malarky then I need to get my blogger's head on! I have already found myself thinking on a day to day basis, "so and so will make a good blog post" but unfortunately I am not very good at following up on these thoughts yet... and I blame one thing. My lack of a decent camera!

In my opinion a good blog includes lots of photos. I do take lots of photos of my cakes to put on Facebook but I only have a basic digital camera to use or my iPhone, and to be honest they aren't any good when taking photos with lots of detail! My boyfriend has a great Nikon camera which he very kindly lets me use from time to time, but it means that if I am in the midst of baking and want to photograph some things to stick up on here as a tutorial then I don't have a good camera to use on the spur of the moment.

So, planning ahead, if there is going to be one thing on my Christmas Wish List this year it is a good, decent camera. Then there will be no stopping me!

Has anyone got any good recommendations for cameras? Food photography isn't always easy, so if anyone out there has any tips of photographing cakes then please feel free to share them!

This is not my cake, nor my photography. But I wanted to show you an example of how I want my cake photography to eventually turn out! Plus I couldn't state that a good blog needs photos and then not include any photos, could I? :)
Love Becca x
