Welcome to Butter Baking.
My name is Natasha. I am a pastry chef and lover of baked goods.
I started Butter Baking in 2011. At the time, I was in my final year of university, studying Arts (Public Relations). I realised that PR was not for me, and all I really wanted to do was bake cake all day (and I don’t even like cake).
As soon as I made that decision, I threw myself into baking. I began blogging to keep track of all my recipes and to keep myself sane while I finished the last few months of my degree.
I also started working at a cupcake shop, and as hard as it was to get up in the morning, I really enjoyed doing the early morning bake.
Once I finished my degree, I enrolled in a patisserie course at culinary school, which I have since finished. I loved every single minute, and learnt so much from all of the amazing chefs.
And now, I work full time as a pastry chef at a little bakery.
If you’re interested, you can read my full story here.
Some things I love:
Baking (obviously). Cookies (preferably if they’re chewy). Cookie dough. Warm summer evenings. Lychee martinis (or any martinis, really). Reading a great book. Chocolate. Modern asian food. Making lists. My gorgeous friends and Mr Man. My family. Travelling. My (now huge) puppy. Ice cream. Person of Interest (do you watch it?!). Coffee. Freshly baked pastries.
Some things I don’t love:
Cooking. Cake (weird, I know). Long winters. Slow drivers. Waking up at 3am. Spaghetti. Traffic. Frosting (also weird, I know).

PS. When I started this blog, I never imagined it would grow and blossom into what it has become today – I actually thought no one would ever read it.
But Butter Baking has surprised me and grown into something fantastic that I am extremely proud of, that I work very hard at, and that I absolutely love doing.
I love having you here to visit and adore hearing when you’ve tried out one of my recipes.
But please keep in mind – all of the photos and some of the recipes (unless otherwise stated) on Butter Baking are of my own hard work and creation and subject to copyright.
If you recreate one of my original recipes on your own blog, please, please give me credit and link back to me.
And if you would like to use one of my photos, please email me first to ask at butterbaking[at]hotmail[dot]com. I would really appreciate it
Thanks for visiting! Hope you come back soon.
