Welcome to SunCakeMom!
She is Edi Baker who loves baking for fun. She also bakes when she needs some “me” time or when her family asks her to contribute something to the Sunday dinner table. Not as she can’t cook delicious Sunday roast but she bakes pies much better.
She is mainly a grade 6 teacher. During the school year she finds peace under the humming noise of the airflow oven where she is left alone with her thoughts and some kind of flour. This is where magic or rarely disasters happen.
Not being the follower type in life, she always found it difficult to follow recipes in the kitchen, too. She has never gone to baking school or housewife course to get the basics right. However, when she was a small girl, she always lurked around her mother or grandma, whoever was in the kitchen. They had countless chats about big and little questions of life whilst she was helping and learning baking tricks from them that time.
When she got into her own kitchen, many years after she left her family home, she started experimenting with all sort of treats and inventing her own cakes and biscuits. It seems that she’s got a natural talent for it, as they turned out to be more than just edible. Soon, she got awarded a responsibility to bake birthday cakes for all of her friends’ party. The only problem was that no-one had known the names of the cakes because no-one had named them nor written down the recipes. It was really hard to explain who wanted which cake.
Then came the idea of writing down the recipes, just to have them somewhere thus SunCakeMom was born in 2014.
The other part of the team is Thomas Cook. He is responsible for all things technical and cooking. He is Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and WordPress. He sharpens the knives, reviews the kitchen tools, takes the photos and builds the site. Also, he has to destroy all the cakes and cookies that aesthetics aren’t up to the site standards. It’s a taxing task so he has taken up running five times a week to be able to cope with the challenge.
During the years the site changed quite a bit and so did the people. Refined sugar has been eliminated from diets; white flour and dairy consumption has been reduced as well. We haven’t gone gluten-free or paleo but we are trying to follow a nutritious, natural, healthy, balanced diet. This change of mind mirrors itself in our recipes during the years starting with the ingredients we choose through the processes we follow.
We hope, you find pleasure in our recipes as much as we find pleasure making them. If you like to get in touch with us you can do so through our contact us page.
