About Rachel Bakes

Iíve been thinking about setting up Rachel Bakes since taking my first batch of unashamedly sparkly cupcakes into work and being flattened by the rush to the box at tea time.  Iíve finally decided to take the plunge and give it a go, as you really canít have too many cakes in your life.


Its simple really, making cakes makes me happy.  Eating them seems to make other people happy too.  In particular, the unpolished, home made, slightly lumpy bumpy but totally delicious cakes that make you think of childrenís parties. 


Personally I think that cake is the solution to most things and in this fast-paced world we live in good baking Ė whether youíre making it or simply eating it - makes you slow down and savour in ways which are almost forgotten.  And when you stop and think about all the special occasions in your life, where would they have been without a generous slice of cake?


And now for the disclaimer: I donít make the type of high gloss perfection cakes which you find on cook book covers.  I make real cakes for real people.  They are big on flavour, enthusiastic with the sparkles and designed to appeal to the inner child in most of us that still secretly go a bit weak at the knees at the thought of a chocolate cupcake with sprinkles on top.


If this sounds like your type of cake Iíd love to hear from you.  My promise to you is that I will put my heart and soul into making sure they rise to the occasion!
