Where are your recipes from?
My recipes have lovingly been developed from a variety of old-fashioned favourite childhood cookbooks, popular bakeries and patisseries, and trendy food bloggers and celebrity chefs. I acknowledge all of these sources play a role in inspiring me and helping to develop my recipes, and provide details about the origins of each recipe in the credits section of each recipe post.
What camera equipment do you use?
My camera is a Canon 6D and my favourite lens for food photography is the Canon 100mm f2.8L macro lens, as it allows a razor sharp focus for small details, produces brilliant bokeh and captures light perfectly (it’s also magical for portraits)! I often use my Canon 50mm f1.4 for aerial food photography as it allows a wider angle than can be achieved with a 100mm lens. I shoot both freehand and with my camera mounted from a tripod in low light settings or with a self-timer to achieve action shots.
Who eats all your baked goods?
Funnily enough, this is one of my most frequently asked questions! I usually share my sweet treats with my family, friends and colleagues, who provide me with invaluable feedback on my recipes and prevent me from over-indulging myself.
May I order a cake from you?
I love baking cakes for friends and family but unfortunately, it is not feasible for me to bake event cakes on a larger scale. If you are baking a cake for an event using one of my recipes and would like any further advice, please feel free to comment on the recipe post or use my Contact page to get it touch. Alternatively, depending on your location, I may be able to provide recommendations on where you can purchase a delicious cake for your next event.

Where are your beautiful servingware, ceramics and napery from?
I enjoy food styling and adore handmade ceramics and pottery. I love supporting local and emerging designers and you’ll find the details of all products used in my shoots in the credits section on each recipe page. If you’d like to collaborate, I’d love to hear from you. Visit my Contact page to get in touch, keeping in mind that I prefer to work with designers that have a natural blend with my aesthetic.
What is your disclosure statement?
I love supporting small business and local artisans that create quality products. Occasionally, I’ll post a recipe that will include a product from a specific brand, and if this item has been received as a sample, this will be noted in the individual post. The majority of props seen in my photos have been purchased myself for personal use, and happily feature at many an afternoon tea at home with loved ones. Over the course of blogging and social media interaction, I have established relationships and collaborated with a various designers and as such, there are some pieces in my collection that have been received as gifts. All opinions expressed on this website are my own and not influenced in any way.
