Baking with Gab started because I bake too much and take photos of what I bake. I like my food simple, pretty and delicious. I much prefer food that is big on taste, rather than presentation, but I appreciate good food styling as well!

I’m not a perfect baker by any means; I forget to sift my flour and substitute granulated sugar when I don’t have caster sugar; I over-whip cream and take shortcuts when I can.

And I always melt my butter when I only intend to soften it.

I often talk to inanimate objects as well.

When I’m not baking, I enjoy reading, writing, travel and photography.

I also love dachshunds, floral/animal prints and tea – not necessarily in that order. My sausage dogs, Norman and Daisy, will pop up in posts every now and then, keep an eye out for them! They’re all over my Instagram.

If you’d like to follow or contact me, you can do so over several platforms:

If you have any super recipes or products that you’d like me to feature, send them my way, I’m open to ideas.

Thanks for reading, happy baking!
