Welcome to Dessert Tales!
Dessert Tales is home to my baking explorations. You’ll find here baking recipes, and also occasional musings and reflections about life, people, music and crafts.
My baking adventures began when I was around 18 with banana bread, and from then I was hooked. I scoured the internet and cookbooks for recipes and information about baking, reading as much as I begin my quest in purchasing baking equipment. I didn’t bake as much in the first few years, and simply just enjoyed reading baking blogs I discovered online. But as the years went by, I baked more and documented them – there’s a folder in my old computer with bakes dating back in 2007! It’s embarrassing how some of the bakes turned out, sometimes with blurred photos that had weird angles.
When I started my personal blog some years back – From Cass with Love, I started sharing some of my favourite bakes and recipes. But I wanted a home for all my baking, even though baking and my life is so much intertwined that my friends see desserts and think of me, I wanted a space just for archiving my favourite recipes and baking explorations.
Thus Dessert Tales was born.
You must be wondering – what about tales? I secretly wanted to be a manga artist when I was younger, but after drawing for a few years and discovering that I could draw was still stick figures, I figured okay, I should just take photos, write and mash them together into something presentable. Like the recipes on this blog.
Thanks for visiting, and hope you enjoy being part of this journey!
