It all started nearly 40 years ago, with two books.
I had always loved baking as a little girl, and was usually to be found in the kitchen with my Nan when we visited. Mum was always baking too, and whereas my Nan taught me to bake scones and cakes I can trace my obsession with unusually shaped biscuits back to rainy days in the kitchen with my Mum, and those books.
For five years I ran my business Quirky Cookies & Cakes making our highly sought after bespoke designed cookies and novelty cakes. Our cookies and cakes were featured on television, in both national and local magazines and on the radio. We even made some biscuit props for the Edinburgh Fringe.
At the moment I’m taking a break from the cookies and am concentrating on my day job back in education. However I still enjoy my baking, especially when it’s science and maths themed!
