My name is Erika, I am a 31 year-old Hungarian woman, who is in love with baking.
I’ve always had a sweet-tooth, and as a kid I spent most of my time in the kitchen helping my mum.
First I fell in love with cooking in general, but slowly I grew to love baking more than anything else. It was amazing to see the process of how the pieces become a whole, a finished piece. In the beginning, I found baking more difficult. When cooking you can always just add a pinch of salt to fix the problem. Baking, on the other hand, is a different game. It requires precision, accuracy and – as I would later discover – a lot of creativity.
Once I started to relieve regular orders and positive feedback, I was hooked! It was such a great boost to see all the smiles and shining eyes absorbing my latest creation. It has always motivated to learn more and more about baking.
The best teacher I ever had is my mum. I still look up to her as my master. Check her cakes out at https://www.facebook.com/Tortatanya/.
Everything I know I learnt from her as well as the internet whenever necessary. Almost every time I make a new cake, I end up YouTubing some new tricks in order to find a new solution and keep things creative. Creativity is very important to me. I love spending hours and hours just to make every little detail look perfect.
Every time I’m waiting for a customer to pick up a cake, I get so nervous and excited. I love the whole process from the beginning to the end and that’s why I decided to set up ‘Floury Hands’.
