My love for all things "Home Baked with Love", started in a small kitchen on a farm in the Free State outside the beautiful town, Parys, with my loving mother who took on catering for large events, bakeries, home baked shops and weddings in her stride. I had been privileged to have had two grandmothers who also were master bakers and always, always had fresh cake in the house.
Being welcomed into the kitchen at an early age, taught me much about history (who's recipe is this?), science (the chemistry of baking), math (measuring the ingredients - remember, measure twice, bake once!) and geography (the origin of the cake and ingredients). Today, after many years of baking up a storm with my mom to serve the royalty, clients, friends, family and loved ones, it all resulted in a need to share my skills, knowledge and techniques with other.
