Welcome to Safira’s Bake Shop’s Blog.
My name is Kelly and I’m a baker and cookier from The Netherlands. I’m absolutely in love with everything sweet and delicious. I love to bake and create. I love to learn and try out new things. I love to decorate cookies and I would love to share my passion with you guys! And honestly, how much can your husband pretend to listen and care about cookies, cupcakes and frosting and all that other wonderful stuff without getting to eat it?
Before I go on let me tell you a little bit about myself:
I’m a stay-at-home mom with 3 kids under 3. I have the most loving and supportive husband I could wish for. The kind of guy that will roll his eyes whenever I talk about things I ‘need’ for my baking supply but than will surprise me by buying me even more stuff I didn’t know I ‘needed’. My 1 and 2 year old daughters drive me crazy with all the unnecessary exercise they’re giving me around the house and my baby boy of 3 months will make sure he wakes up every 3 hours and will stay awake at 5am (meaning that’s when my day starts).
Between all of this wonderfulness that’s called motherhood I manage to bake and decorate. My family is my biggest supporter, my mom is my nr 1 supporter and my aunts and cousins are never shy to volunteer to try out new recipes. My lovely friend Berdien who has built my website has been a real life saver! (Check out her website if you need any help with internet/business/marketing stuff!)
This blog will be mostly in English, but since English is not my native language and I don’t always have time to check with Google Translate you’ll probably read some Dunglish (Dutch-English). But as long as I make sense and you can get a laugh out of it, I’m good. I hope that my fellow Dutchies get to see what cookie decorating really is. Natuurlijk kan er ook altijd besteld worden!
