Hi, my name is Karen. Welcome to The Lemon Grove Cake Diaries a blog about baking and desserts with a few savoury recipes thrown in.
I studied patisserie at Southbank Tafe in Brisbane, Australia and was awarded student of the year. I worked briefly in the pastry kitchen of a 5 star hotel, but now I am concentrating on my own cake design business: The Lemon Grove Cake Company.
There are hundreds of recipes I want to try so my blog is a way of keeping track of them. I plan to test, adapt and develop recipes. For those of you who are new to baking there is a Tutorials page that will provide a step by step guide to key techniques.
Just for a bit of fun, I have challenged myself to complete what I call the great “Paris Postcard Challenge“. I will update the Paris postcard page whenever I complete another part of the challenge.
My recipes will be in metric and I recommend that ingredients are weighed using digital scales to ensure consistency.
