Welcome to Sweet Inspirations By Sarah! My name is Sarah and I am the baker, writer and 'photographer' (I use this term loosely) behind the blog.
As you can tell, I have a slight addiction to baking and sugar in general.
In my mind starting a blog seemed sensible as friends were always asking for recipes. But then when I went to pass the recipes on I found I was adding notes to the original recipes as I had changed them so much. So why not create a place where friends could just print off my recipes themselves.
This blog is still young, only created in August 2012. I am hoping to continue to add recipes that I love and to expand upon the tips and tutorials section incorporating some more cake decorating ideas.
I am mostly a self taught baker, learning through pure trial and error. My cake decorating is a work in progress and I am a student of the school of you tube and the world wide web. I am inspired by a lot of different food bloggers on the web, recipe websites, cookbooks, my mum, my children and random ideas that pop into my head. It’s true… I dream about buttercream. When it comes to cake decorating, I create cakes mostly for family, so the children inspire me to try new things. When children pick a birthday cake they don't care how you are going to create it, that's your problem, they just know they want it! This has encouraged me to experiment and try new things with cake decorating, with much success along the way.
I live in Melbourne, Australia. I currently work from home supporting the family business. I have 3 young children and spend a lot of time with family and friends. I'm excited to share my escapades in the kitchen and what I've learnt along the way. Hopefully you will find the recipes delicious, the tips informative and the tutorials inspiring. If you test out a recipe, let me know! Don’t be a stranger, I’d love to hear from you.
