Hi Cake Baby! Welcome. I'll add my greetings to Goldi's and invite you to explore the site, too. You'll find a good many skilled pastry people here and some fabulous images of their work in the photo galleries. We hope you'll add some pix of your work, too. A couple of our founding Chef Talk members, Momoreg and MBrown, are pastry chefs, although both are busy with other pursuits these days. smile.gif

 

We hope you enjoy being part of this community, whether it's to share or to pick up some new ideas. I'm a home cook and baker who's learned so much from the professionals here, as well as from the more accomplished home bakers. You never know what a day here may bring: recipes from a home kitchen in Singapore; ideas from a professional kitchen in Spain; a new idea from a colleague in the States. 

 

Enjoy it all! Welcome,

Mezzaluna

Hey Cake Baby,

 

London is a great City, I love it. I find it hard to discover good new independent business though, there are a lot of chains about and I'd rather go to somewhere unique, if you know what i mean. Having said that, new placed pop up all the time so you need to keep your ear to the ground.

 

One of my favourite places is Maison Bertaux in Soho. it is quirky, unique and does beautiful cakes http://www.maisonbertaux.com/maisonbertaux.com/Maison_Bertaux.html It is very well known now though and gets really crowded.

 

I love baking and have been getting into it quite a bit recently. Where abouts do you live, do you decorate at home or in a shop/restaurant?

London sounds fabulous , I live in California , I live it here also , I have done some cakes at home mostly for family and friends , I've always worked in privately owned bakery's
