Candy Girl

I loathe introductory sections because I never know where to start, and how to stop. There has to be a balance here and I always manage to overdo it. So I guess I’ll just wing it and start with the basics.


Me and a birthday cake I made for a friend

I go by Sophia although all my close friends have variants of that by which they call me. I love food and I truly enjoy slaving over food hours on end, even if takes me only 15 minutes to finish the meal. I obsessively collect cookbooks and have taken more photos of food in the past few years than I have of people.

I am passionate about food and the craft of producing it; and this little space on the web is my outlet to spew forth about it lest I drive the lovely people in my life insane with my incessant chatter. It is to document the food I’ve made and to record the successes and failures I encounter on my quest to improve my craft. This is but one aspect of my life, but it is the barest part of me for everything you see here has (usually!) been produced with a lot of thought, effort and love.

Welcome to my world.
