Hi! Welcome to Lights, Camera, BAKE! – the blog for all things dessert, baking and a touch of movies.
I’m Emma and I have a
love passion for baking. I’ve always had a love for baking but after finishing high school that love turned into a passion. My casual baking turned into a frenzy so I decided to combine my love for baking and photography/entertainment and start filming tutorials and blogging some of my recipes. I attempting to make a career out of Lights, Camera, BAKE! and can’t wait to see where this blogging journey will take me. I hope you’ll join me for the ride!
I’m a self taught baker with a love for creating new recipes. I do try to follow recipes but I almost always end up adapting them in some way. Reduce the sugar here, add a dash of chocolate there… Did I mention I’m a complete chocoholic?
I live in New Zealand but was born in Australia. I feel lost most of the time, have a terrible sense of direction and have two cats who hate each other but at least I love them both. As I said above, I hope to turn Lights, Camera, BAKE! into my career and create a booming business! This blog is also a place where I can write and share my life with all of you often with chocolate (not always) and with a lot of explanation marks.
More about me? I’m bit of an adrenaline junkie, love music – and play a few instruments – and I love nothing more than cuddling up in front of the fire with a good horror or thriller movie and an ooey gooey sweet treat.
My other passion in life is film making (hence the name Lights, Camera, BAKE!). One summers holiday a couple of friends and I decided to have a go at filming a short movie. We were, as were our friends and family, pleasantly surprised by the outcome. This fueled my passion, and I wrote more scripts and we filmed more short films. Since the age of 15 I have written, directed, produced, acted in, designed, filmed, edited and advertised over 15 short films. All these films were created with very limited equipment and no budget. (Looking back you can see they are low budget but making those movies taught me a lot).
I also aim to have a career in “show-business”. Did I mention my brain never shuts down? I’m constantly creating, planning and baking. I also don’t sleep!
I love photography, writing, creating and the kitchen is my happy place. Baking is a place where I can go to unwind, switch off and just be. I hope to inspire others to get in the kitchen and BAKE! Just get back into the kitchen, create homemade treats and use baking as a safe and positive outlet.
