I started Cakelets and Doilies in 2012 (has it really been that long) because I wanted a place to keep all my favourite recipes. Before this blog, my recipes were often in scrap pieces of handwritten notes and half-attempted notebooks scattered in various locations throughout my home, often lost and forgotten. Having a blog just seems like a great idea, and it allows me to practice one of my other interests that is photography. Win win, I say.

I grew up in Singapore and now live in Western Australia where the most beautiful beaches are pretty much in our backyard. I started baking when we moved to our first apartment, where I finally have a kitchen that I don't have to share, and a proper oven. The first thing I tried to bake was a Japanese-style strawberry cake roll. What a disaster! It was 100% failure for my first few months of baking. And then there was a success, and then another, and my confident grew. And so here we are.

My favourite things to bake (and eat) are chiffon cakes, japanese-style cakes, entrements, tarts and breads.

If you ever attempt a recipe from this blog, please don't be shy to leave a comment, send me an email or even tag me at instagram. I would love to hear from you. :)
