Hi there and welcome to We Are Baking. I am Taianne, the owner of this website and I love to bake.
Why We Are Baking
My first adventure with baking was when I was 11 years old. I got up in the middle of the night and baked a cake for my mom and dad’s anniversary. Nothing fancy. I used 2 tootsie pops on the top of the cake for decoration.
After that my fascination with baking kinda faded away for a while as my interests were just being a kid.
But the love of baking came back when I married. You see, my husband loves apple pie and I had never baked a pie before. My first attempt, I have to be honest was a wreck. I have improved since then, I promise.
I love trying new recipes as well as tweaking a few to my taste.
Baking Is Really A Science
With baking, you really have to be precise. The right ingredients and the right measurements otherwise you will have a disaster on your hands. Every ingredient in a baked good has a certain role to play and you have to know what ingredient can be substituted with what.
And I love a challenge. I don’t always win but I love trying until I do get it right. I have learned many tricks and tips along the way and I want to share them with you.
We all have questions when it comes to baking. “Can I use this instead of that?” “Why does this happen?” and so many more.
I want to help you with these questions and share with you some of my favorite recipes as well. Who knows you may find a new favorite recipe.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
