About!

Hi,

I’m Jane, and I am attempting to make a career and life for myself through baking and cooking.

995206_10151939574615873_110474995_n

I adore baking and cooking, probably too much, but I haven’t been able to find anything else in life that takes my fancy more. Now that I am 25 and have graduated from Ashburton Chefs Academy in June 2014 as a trained chef, I am attempting to explore the world of all things food, and share it all with as many people as possible.

One of the biggest secrets about me? I actually prefer savoury food. However, I love to experiment with all things sweet. Hopefully in the future I will branch out into Savoury Food, more Gluten-Free & Vegan recipes, and even vlogging on my Youtube channel!

I love to research in to recipes daily, and experiment, so I hope you like the results! I try recipes from Celebrity Chef’s, other Food Bloggers, and just recipes I come across whether in a magazine, or on the internet! Some experimentations don’t work quite so well, but others work truly brilliantly and have amazing feedback from my Trusty Taste Testers.

I love that when you find the basics of a recipe, such as a No-Bake Vanilla Cheesecake, you can experiment to the ends of the Earth with different flavours and ideas. Baking and Cooking is all about Science and Chemistry at the end of the day, and I love it.

  1. I have just made your salted caramel cake and oh my god it was amazing! I am renowned as being a blimmin awful cook/baker (and have even had birds refuse to eat my ‘masterpieces’ once they’ve been thrown out on the lawn as unfit for human consumption (according to my friends and family. However, your recipe is foolproof! It’s the best cake I’ve ever made and even had help from my 3 year old! Thank you so so much! X

      1. Can they be printed then? Thanks for your reply, just can’t believe I’ve found such an amazing website, recipes are amazing, you’ve made baking so easy

  2. Hi Jane,
    Amazing website and recipes are fab!
    I was just wondering what piping kit you use- is it easy for a beginner to piping and any tips?
    Thanks xx

    1. Hiya! Thank you. I don’t really use a piping kit, I buy all the bits separately, some from amazon, some from Iced Jems. On most recent posts such as my cheesecakes the items are linked to the exact ones I use! x

  3. Hi Jane!
    I just recently came across your page and youtube channel and feeling so so inspired as I LOVE to bake and hoping to make a career out of it. I am too a sucker of no bake cheesecakes so when I found your page it was like a dream! I can’t wait to try your cheesecake recipes, however I must ask- how long do they normally sit out for? I find that when I make my no bake cheesecakes they can’t sit out for too long and they would melt over time so it makes it abit difficult for me to be at peace (worried they will eventually melt) especially for when i serve them at an event (as it would be sitting out for quite awhile) and for times when I sell them and get them delivered to somewhere quite far.

    You are an inspiration!
    Thanks so much for sharing your recipes xxx

    1. I leave mine out for a maximum amount of time of 30minutes whilst I take my photos, as it is a refrigerated item. Eventually yes they will melt, because they need to be kept in the fridge as stated on the recipes. Also, the food will probably go off, because they’re a cold item. xx

  4. Hi Jane!

    I love making cheesecakes for family & friends and you inspire me with all your recipes (the Malteser one was a big hit!).

    I currently make everything by hand and am looking to invest in a stand mixer. Would you mind letting me know the mixer you use please?

    Love the blog and subscribe to your YouTube channel. Look forward to seeing some more recipes

    1. Hiya! Ahh thank you so much for making them! I’m glad everyone enjoys them! And I use a Kitchenaid, 4.8L in size. It’s the main size version you can buy in most places, but they are a bit pricey! However, I’ve had mine 5 years, and its had no issues at all so far considering daily use! x

      1. That’s great, thanks for letting me know. I’ll take a look and see how much they are. Sounds like a worthwhile investment though if you’ve had daily use over 5 years?!

        All the very best and look forward to reading more posts and recipes x

  5. Hi i was wondering if it woukd still work if i needed this for 18 people and just added a half of the ingredients onto original amount in larger tin or would it make a difference..thanks x

  6. As a newbie to baking, this blog has been my absolute bible!
    I love the huge range of recipes and how they incorporate all the best things (for me it’s gin and Terry’s choc orange!!). There’s a recipe for everyone! Thank you so much Jane! Your blog has been so much better than traditional cook books and my friends and family are loving my attempts at your recipes haha 🙂

  7. hey jane! you’re blog is so lovely! i had a question abut your logo (the cartoony version of yourself) its pretty spot on and looks great and im looking for something similar for my up and coming blog, would you mind sharing the info of where to find it or how to create something like this?? also, feel free to check out my blog, i would love any pointers !

      1. Well I’m at uni in Exeter which is really near to Ashburton but come home to Somerset in the holidays 🙂 I know so cool! Are the courses there good? I’m going to assume from the quality of your bakes that they are haha 🙂

  34. Hi Jane, thanks for vising us and liking my post on Timpana, the Maltese pasta pie

    I guess Ashburton has changed a lot from when I used to visit when I was growing up in Christchurch, back then it was a pretty boring one horse town.

    I love baking too, it was my first love really, and it’s so hard to choose from all your lovely recipes, but the White Chocolate and Cranberry biscuits sound fab! Two of my favourite ingredients (and my daughter Bunny’s too!) Off the make some right now!

    Thanks Mimsey

    1. Its okay, your post looked really tasty and interesting!! I adore Ashburton, the town is still cute, quirky and tiny but the cookery school is probably the heart of it, absolutely amazing! And thank you so much that’s so sweet!
      I hope you like the cookies!! Let me know how it goes!!
      Jane x

  35. Any blog with chocolate truffles goes straight in my good books for sure! You’ve got such a great blog here with posts that I can’t stop drooling over. Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you enjoyed my post on cinnamon rolls!

  37. Hi Jane,
    I’ve just popped by to thank you for visiting my blog and liking a couple of my posts. I really like your blog, the photos just look so professional. I’m not surprised that you have proper training given how utterly amazing all of your recipes look!

Doing something that you love is not always possible, but you seem to have made it come true for you. Congrats. Have only read a few of your posts, but enjoyed them. Definitely going to have to try some of your bread recipes.
