Glad you found this cosy little corner. Make yourself comfy. Come chat over chocolate cake and a good cup of tea. The Cake Mistress is currently writing from Melbourne Australia, and is focused on the sweeter things in life: baking and dessert, sharing home-style recipes with a pinch of nostalgia.
HOMESTYLE RELIABLE RECIPES THAT ARE SUPER DELICIOUS
Fancypants desserts in bazillion Michelin Star restaurants are all well and good. But sometimes you just need a darn good piece of chocolate cake like Mum used to make.
Within lies recipes for homestyle goodies with a pinch of nostalgia: cakes, cookies, cupcakes, biscuits, slices and more. No style over substance allowed. Only tested and super-delicious recipes are published here.
It makes me happy to learn that you’ve tried a recipe here and you’re delighted with the results. I love seeing your comments, so thank you for taking the time to give feedback. Of course, constructively let me know if something didn’t go according to plan too and we can problem-solve together.
SIMPLE RECIPES YOU CAN MAKE TODAY: NO FANDANGLED GADGETS
Nan didn’t need fandangled gadgets to create amazing food: great things can be accomplished with a good recipe, good technique and love.
THE CAKE MISTRESS
Your resident cake-hole is Ms Emma, who fled Perth to take up residency in Melbourne, Australia in 2009, starting The Cake Mistress a year later in 2010. She likes cake, baking, travelling and talking in the 3rd person. She looks like her profile pic approximately 0.05% of the time, but hey, this is the internet, so let’s be fancy. She works full-time in a completely non-food related field and bakes/writes/photographs/designs The Cake Mistress in her spare time, so apologies in advance if your question isn’t answered at Superman speed. She might also be distracted by chocolate cake or in a cookie coma, but will snap out of it soon.
