I’m a mother of 2 children, and one angel baby. Happily married to the man of my dreams (quite literally)…but that’s another story. I was born in South Africa and spent 9 wonderful years there before my parents decided to make the move to Vancouver, Canada. I spent 14 years there, growing up and trying to find my way. I finally decided that I wanted to be a Pastry Chef, so enrolled in Pastry School. Fast forward a few years and a mild obsession with Scotland (I was introduced to Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander book series when I was 14 years old by my step mother) and I packed my bags for the solo holiday of a lifetime. I just never went back. I met my gorgeous husband and as they say ‘the rest is history’.

I knew I always wanted to be a mom, and I decided that while my husband (Kyle) was working, I’d try to bring in a bit of an income from home while raising our babies. Baking was the obvious answer and before I knew it, my little business started to pick up.

I love challenging myself and am always on the lookout for inspiration. When I’m not caking, I can usually be found reading (crafting, spell casting, or immersed in True Crime TV, meditating and gardening, I am incredibly morbid and love all things gory. Kyle might say I have a disturbing fascination with death. I just call it profound curiousity. I would have loved to be a Medical Examiner if I wasn’t caking, or candle making( and didn’t have such a weak stomach).  Saying that I love ALL things cute and whimsical and bright! I’ve even got a gorgeous range of cupcake inspired candles over at Donut Eat Bakery
