Hello World

My name is Li, and I love cake! I have been wanting to start a blog for a while now, as I am so inspired by the likes of Smitten kitchen, Joy the Baker and Love and olive oil (to name but a few). Also I cook/bake lots and could do with improving my food photography, and I want to learn to sew, would like to document my knitting projects and share the odd picture of our kitten (KITTEN! – we get her on Thursday.

My New Year’s Resolution was to bake every weekend, as I have this cupcake book that I never wanted to use as there were few pictures. So I was going to bake, take pictures and supplement the book.

I will try to catch up as I am missing baking terribly, and beginning to crave foods that I have no means of making. Fingers crossed for the start of July… then we’ll really be cooking.
