The Bubbly Baker

Croissant in Paris

Hi everyone!

Thank you for dropping by and sharing my baking adventures with me πŸ™‚

I’m from Melbourne, Australia and I work a seemingly normal corporate job during the week, however turn into a crazy, bake-zilla by weekend. I love trying new recipes and I often refer to my $10 K-Mart beater as my best friend. I also like to think I have real human friends too, who all miraculously seem to be baked good addicts. I think I’m a very lucky girl.

A few things that I’m currently enjoying (as of May 2012):

1. Grey’s Anatomy (still, even after 7 years!)
2. Crazy Stupid Love (ummmmmm….. one word: Ryan)
3. “Wonder”, a book by RJ Palacio, recommended to me by one of my real life besties, Lily. I highly recommend it… it will make you reevaluate perceptions of you, your life, and others. Touching stuff.
4. Running. Still loving it, despite the cold Melbourne weather.
5. Friends. What would one do without them? I lost contact with a very good friend a while ago, however just recently made contact again and it seems as though nothing has changed. I missed her and I’m glad she’s back.
6. Banh Xeo. This is a Vietnamese dish consisting of stir fried mince pork, bean shoots, bamboo shoots, prawns and onion, pan fried into a thin yellow crepe.Β GenerouslyΒ douse in fish sauce and voila, deeeeeeeeeeeeelicioussss!
7. French musician Joyce Jonathan. Really loving her music and is sooooo suited for the sombre, dull winter mornings that we’ve been having lately.

And that’s all I can think of at the moment. Let me know if you share the same interests too, and we can be friends. Real lifeΒ Virtual friends are always welcome πŸ™‚



  1. You know what, I love butter, flour & sugar also! Nice to meet you.

  2. It sounds like we have a lot in common πŸ™‚ Lovely to find your blog and I’m salivating at all of your delicious-looking cakes!

    P.S. I love Banh Xeo too. It’s one of my favourite dishes!

  3. Hey, I just hopped over to your web-site thru StumbleUpon. Not somthing I would typically read, but I liked your thoughts none the less. Thank you for creating something well worth browsing.

  4. LOVE your blog! Your creations are absolutely stunning!

  5. Hi BB. I am struggling a bit with a tried and tested red velvet recipe. Do you have one I coul try perhaps please? Thanks for all of your interest on my blog and loving yours. Xxx kay

    • Hi Kay πŸ™‚
      I’ve made red velvet sooo many times so I feel confident in sharing with you the one I use – you can find it under my “Engagement Cupcakes” link where I made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Let me know if you have any problems with it and hopefully we can work it out together πŸ™‚ good luck, and let me know how you go! x

  6. Now I’m embarrassed you saw my post about cake pops, but I hope you try them out because yours will look a billion times better than mine!

  7. Because I really like your blog, I nominated you for the β€˜One Lovely Blog Award’. You can see it here:

    • Aww thank you πŸ™‚ I’m absolutely loving your blog and all your delicious creations too! And I think we also need to talk books… would you have any particular book that you recommend? πŸ™‚

      • Hmm…it depends on what you like to read. Let me know what kind of books you usually gravitate to and I’ll send you some titles!

      • oooh, I usually read a lot of general fiction – some of my favourites include The Book Thief (Mark Zuckas), Shantaram (Gregory Roberts), To Kill a Mocking Bird. Nothing too violent, graphic, or war related.
        Hope that gives you some idea. Looking forward to hearing your suggestions πŸ™‚ Let me know what some of your faves are too!

If you wish to continue receiving future posts from my blog you will need to re-subscribe. Sorry for the inconvenience, Teresa.

  20. Hahaha corporate job by day, bake-zilla by weekend…that could totally describe me too!! Except sometimes I’m a bake-zilla by night as well…I really need to cut down on my baking. Anyway, just wanted to say that I totally want to eat that croissant croissant (?) in your photo, that I also LOVE Crazy Stupid Love and running! Mostly I love running to counteract all my baking. Ugh why are you in Australia?! I feel like we would be great real-life friends!

    • Gahhh we sound like twins! haha! I think we definitely would be real life friends if we lived around each other! I completely resonate with you – bakezilla by night, by early morning, by day, by afternoon – pretty much bakezilla any time, any day lol
      I’m so happy to have come across your blog – I love how you’re on a detox now (because I am too!). Totally stalking your blog for some healthy recipes! (Getting sick of my spinach+chickpea+beetroot+cucumber+avo salad -.-)

    Hey Bubbly Baker! I do a little bit of baking on my blog and was wondering If I could use one of your Carrot Cake Cupcake Picture for a future blog?
