About Me

Hello,

I’m Flora. I’m 16 and I love reading, baking, cooking and listening to music.

Why did I decide to create Bakering?
Bakering was formed in because of a realisation of a skill that most teenagers lacked: Most people of my age would rather go out to eat as they didn’t know how to cook for themselves.*

 As a child, I was fortunate to be brought up in an environment where my parents who have great taste and therefore always brought me to try out different cuisines and restaurants. However, even though every time I tried out all these amazing dishes, I had only thought about how they were created but never had the drive to go and research-how were these cakes made?

Whilst I was talking to some older university students, I realised how many teenagers of this generation had great academic results and were incredibly intelligent, but lacked these basic survival skills of cooking which made them so reliant on going out to eat. I found it very sad that most of my classmates would resort to fast-food whenever we went out and I decided that it was time I made sure I wouldn’t have to survive on Ramen/Instant Noodles in University.

Therefore, my new years resolution of 2014 was to learn some basic cooking skills-starting from easy baking into developing more complicated main meals. I decided to document this journey on this blog and at first it was just a personal way of recording the but in this process, I truly discovered a passion to bake. I felt that not only was this a great way to improve my cooking skills but the best part was being to able to see so many other bloggers out there all over the world, to learn from them and their cooking backgrounds, whilst sharing my baked products and getting reviews from my classmates.

I’ll modestly put it out there that I’m just an amateur baker, but here, I hope you can find easy renditions of recipes which provide you inspiration and I hope you enjoy exploring this blog.

Thank you.

*This may not be common in western countries but in Hong Kong where I am from, most children do not have to cook as Hong Kong has a large amount of families who depend on domestic helpers to cook and clean the house, whilst their parents work. Therefore, this is a common condition for most Hong Kong kids.

If you have any questions about any recipes or anything in general even books, music, please contact me below.
