I’m Alex and I live in Cologne, Germany. I never spent a lot of time in the kitchen, because my boyfriend does all the cooking. In 2018 I joined a baking class in LA at milkbar. This moment was a game changer, because I felt so creative. Being back at home I baked my first cake from scratch and it felt so good to create something beautiful which also tasted amazing.
In 2019 I baked almost every weekend: cakes, cookies, bread, bagels, etc. It was really exciting and I always wanted to try something new. I started to take pictures of my work and I realized that I really enjoyed it. I shared my baking goods with friends, family and colleagues and it was just amazing to get so much positive feedback. I also realized that baking, creating something with my own hands, gives me a good balance in my life.
In 2020 I want to make it more professional. For me, baking has become a project, which I enjoy a lot and I am excited to learn everything! I am also an enthusiastic and self-taught food photographer and taking photos has become part of the baking process for me.
I’m constantly learning and every bake is a new experience and an opportunity to improve myself in terms of baking results and photos.
