Hi there - Welcome to Benji's Baking blog
To start this blog I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself.
From a young age, I have always enjoyed baking. From about nine I loved the connection between baking... and eating! Through this, I began to bake for family and friends. My story really begins back in 2015 when I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I withdrew from school life and often struggled to get out of bed. Through baking, I was able to find a pastime that would lift my mood and distract me from my anxieties that would so often interfere with my day-to-day life. As time went on I started regularly to produce an array of cakes, biscuits, traybakes and pastries.
Nowadays I enjoy taking recipes and developing them with my own unique twist. I bake on a regular basis for friends and family and I love challenging myself to increase my repertoire!
This website has changed my life completely - in 2018 I was invited to be featured in an article in Nikon’s N-Photo Magazine and just a few months later I was honoured to be awarded 2nd place in my category of The Pink Lady Food Photographer of The Year Awards. My work has also been published in magazines including Baking Heaven Magazine and Gluten-Free Heaven.
Through this blog, I love to share my recipes and baking tips with a wider audience.
