Who writes this blog?

Em does! I was born, raised and still live in southeast London. 

What can I find here?

Butter, cream, eggs, white flour and other gluten heavy ingredients. Not forgetting pounds of chocolate. This blog is my attempt at celebrating baking. I don't blog as much as I used to, but it's been with me for seven years and occasionally I like to come back and share what I've been baking. 

Why did you start a baking blog?

Baking has been a daily thought process of mine since the moment my mum poured whatever cake batter it was into a large doughnut ring pan in our flat back in 1997. As I regrettably missed the chance to study culinary arts at university, I knew I needed somewhere to vent my obsession, so I went with the times and started sharing recipes online.

Where did you learn how to bake?

My mum and her two sisters, I used to watch them make hundreds of wedding cookies without a Kitchenaid. 

Can we get in touch?

Yeah we can! Email me: em@mbakes.com

I can also be found being useless at social media i.e. heres my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
