About Me


My name’s Louise and welcome to my blog Sugar Vanilla Bakes.

Three years ago, on a whim, I took an evening course on baking. A little spark was born and I started buying the odd bit of equipment here and there, a new nozzle, a new cutter. Soon one course turned into several and the bug had bit. And then because I may be slightly crazy I entered my cupcakes into the Cake Masters Christmas Cupcake Competition – and won. Wow.

Since then I’ve been blessed with becoming a Mommy to the cutest little boy, baked a bazillion cupcakes and won a Gold Award at Cake International in April this year. And this year I started my own business – Sugar Vanilla Stencils – designing my own range of cupcake and cake stencils, one of the most exciting challenges I’ve ever undertaken.

Cakey stuff aside, I’m pretty much a bonafide geek when it comes to all things Avengers, Marvel, Dr Who and I have an unhealthy obsession with watching extreme weather programmes (I blame Twister). I may also own every version of Zelda.

Please enjoy my recipes, my photos and hopefully my ramblings. I would love to hear from you.

Louise x
