Hello You, and Welcome to

That’s me below, your not-too-typical good, bad girl next door.  And judging from the look on my face, I’m in my happy place.


As the old saying goes, a woman should be a chef in the kitchen, a lady in the living room, and a….goddess in the bedroom.  This website is where I take my creativity from fantasy to reality, and I get to share it with you.

Now before you get too excited, you’ll mostly find tips and tricks on creativity in the kitchen, maybe some on the living room, and probably nothing in the way of the bedroom, because well, this is not that kind of blog.  But really, this is a place of inspiration for the home, and for life, and it’s where I get to express myself freely whilst having fun doing it.

Some of you may recognize me from my baking blog which I ran for just over three years called Cup-a-cake, which I absolutely loved, but wasn’t in a position to dedicate enough time to, so I took it down in 2014.  Now I’m back, new name, new look and feel, more time, and so much wonderful stuff to share!

I believe every woman should keep a bit of her mystery, so without giving too much away, who am I?

A proudly South African blonde, mostly wholesome woman, with an unconventional streak, following my passion for baking, dessert making, creativity in various forms, writing, and some other cool stuff which I choose to share with the world, in the hopes that what you see here brings you even just an ounce of the joy and balance it brings to me.


It’s me and my gorgeous man, and between us we have a beautifully unique family, made up of really special people who all inspire and challenge me in various ways, and make my life so much richer just by being in it.  Something we all have in common in our undeniable love for food, (and whilst healthy eating is a priority, some of us have an insatiable sweet tooth, no names mentioned…).  Let’s just say, I don’t struggle to find judges to taste my creations.

I hope you like what you see and read.  I welcome constructive feedback, and I’d love to hear from you, so please come back, share in my journey, and keep in touch here:
