Originally under Cakeria (i decided to change my name)
My names Nuria, a full blooded Spaniard born and raised in London - England.
I made my first cake in 2011, I was going through a tough year, at a very low point and hit with depression. One week I became quite sick, the next thing I know I was in hospital and had to be off work for a couple months. So I was stuck at home, I was loosing my mind, as bored as you can imagine! a friends birthday came up so I decided to do something and bake her my first cake (albeit it was a packet mix lol *hides*). Oh the feelings!!! just even designing it and the challenge of turning that design into a cake. The whole process lifted me up made me feel focused, calm and I left the house for the first time in 5 weeks.
Everyone's eyes lit up, their surprise and super kind words made me feel so proud for the first time in a long while not to mention happy, everything washed away that moment and I found my true passion!!!
I have also came a long way since packet mixes:p yes I've learnt to make my cakes from scratch and I've discovered I loveeeeeeee to experiment! and i also just love to eat cake
Anyway I talk about cakes way too much to friends who are probably getting sick of me, so here hoping to share and talk to like minded people, keep improving and hopefully i can make some friends too x
