Introduction

Mae Bakes and… Blogs

Hello! My name is Mae and I am not a baker, but I am becoming one. This blog is dedicated to my new passion in baking. Before I start diving into all things sweet here’s a little more about me.

I live in Austin Texas and work full time. I’m a mom of 2 boys ages 10 and 5. When I’m not working or chasing boys you’ll find me in the gym or outside enjoying Austin’s beautiful weather. I’m into reading, art, photography, trying new restaurants and recently BAKING.

I am by far not very experienced in the kitchen. I recently started baking as a way to spend my time with my oldest son. I find myself googling most of the directions or ingredients in recipes just to get a handle on what I’m doing. I’m constantly learning new things about baking and can get a little overwhelmed and stressed in the kitchen.

So why did I decide to keep baking and then also blog about it?

Because I baked a cake. Yep. It took one cake from scratch and I was hooked. Not only did the cake taste amazing, but I had an amazing time making it. I found out that I was actually a pretty decent baker and wanted to share my baking adventures. All of it. The good bakes and bad bakes. The perfect pies and over baked cakes and everything in between. I’ll also share all of my recipes including tips and tricks that I’ve learned along the way.

I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe some day enjoy one of my bakes. Until then, let’s bake! -Mae
