This blog we decided to keep open for all to view and enjoy. We hopefully aim to entice bloggers and readers who would like to learn to bake but don’t know how or perhaps where to begin. Don’t feel daunted by the task of baking (even the best of us have slip ups at times) and with practice we achieve. It is grasping simple techniques, which is the art to baking and once they are mastered it opens many avenues to creating in baking.
As this is a brand new exciting venture we are not quite sure how many will be interested in joining, but we hope to gain a valued community of bakers and hopefully mature with each prospective months. Our aim is hopefully to be interactive with one another as much as possible and assist to our best ability anyone with answers to their questions as they arise.
We intend to submit a tried and tested recipe each month and also provide tips and techniques to encourage you along the way. We aim to compile a list of Bakers as we bake each month here on Sweet and Simple Bakes. If you are a food blogger we kindly ask that you write a post on your blog, (please feel free to use our badge) and link back to Sweet and Simple Bakes.

I’m a 35 year old married mother of one gorgeous son, living in Surrey, UK. My occupation is full time domestic goddess, thanks to hubby. My passion and love for baking begun in my late 20’s when I came across Nigella Lawson’s book “How to be a Domestic Goddess”. It sparked off something I had not realized about myself until that moment. I love all aspects of baking but the one thing I love the most, is being able to produce delicious creations for my family and friends. I hope to be able to pass on my love and passion of baking on Simple Bakes, sharing with you many of my favourite recipes.

A warm welcome from me! My name is Rosie I am married and have two grown up children. I first started baking at my mother’s side stood on a kitchen stool learning the art of making pastry at the tender age of 7 yrs. My passion grew for baking, which I studied at school and took O level exams in this area. Moving on, I have been baking now for some 40 odd years and in the past few months I have started teaching myself sugarcrafting. I am looking forward to being of assistance to anyone here at ‘Sweet and Simple Bakes’. For anyone starting out and taking their first steps in baking, I can assure you I will make a baker out of you!! Once the correct techniques of baking are mastered its plain sailing from there on, then the baking bug hits you with so much passion you’ll never want to give up your new found skills. Happy baking my friends!! Rosie x
