Tell us about your story, how long have you been running your business and how did you start?

Well I have been cooking and baking most of my life and I was very fortunate to have an Italian 'Nonna' who taught me so much about savoury cooking and my Nan who was a baker so my obsession with cakes and sweets comes from her!  I learnt so much from there at a very young age and without a doubt got my love for all things food from them.  In between my full time jobs previously i was always doing cake orders on the side for friends and family and then about five years ago decided to pursue it full time. It has been such a learning process many highs and many lows but I've made a hundred mistakes along the way but i think that has made me even more resililent and given me the drive to keep going.  There is nothing more rewarding seeing what once was a hobby on the side becoming a very good reality! Sweet and Sour, Yin and Yang, This and That.. sums up me and my business perfectly. 

Your favourite cooking/baking ingredient and why it's your favourite?

Butter!! And lots of it and the good quality stuff! Mine comes in like a 15kg slab and its like Christmas when I receive it so delicious! Can use it cooking savoury and sweet and even better on a loaf of fresh sourdough with salt! 

Your favourite Petite Ingredient flower and why it your favourite?

Dried Edible Confetti because it is just so dang pretty and combines a few of my favourite dried ingredients like the Cornflowers, Calendula and Marigold all just so beautiful especially on top of my cupcakes. 

Name something you cannot live without?

Without a doubt my family and friends, they have seen me through all the highs and lows of my business. Also cannot live without a good music play list, cannot bake without the tunes pumping!

The best thing about your business?

Well sometimes i can work in my pj's ha!  But in all seriousness I love that I had a little dream and I am watching it very slowly come to life, it's been a big process of finding myself within my passion and living it all out.  I also get to bake and create beautiful customised cakes and meet before people along the way who let me be a part of such an important occasion in their life, that just makes me happy!
