I’m constantly inspired by the amazing work of other bakers!! The passion that these people have for baking shines in their creations, and I can’t describe how wonderful it is to see the excitement and enthusiasm others have in the kitchen. Below is a short list of the many bakers who inspire me day in and day out!!
Sally McKenney – Sally’s Baking Addiction: Sally’s recipes are always winners, and she has written several (amazing) baking books! She was the first blogger I followed, way back before I even started baking! I have so much respect and admiration for her.
Yolanda Gampp – How to Cake It: Yolanda is simply an incredible cake maker!! Her cakes are literally show stopping, and her YouTube videos are so entertaining. She is a rockstar, and has inspired so many bakers out there to get in the kitchen and have fun.
Matt Adlard – Topless Baker: I had the pleasure of meeting Matt at a Food Network event, and he is just as fun IRL as he is on YouTube and Instagram! His intricate and stunning pastries are so fun to watch come together, and his commentary around their ideation and execution are the best.
Molly Yeh – My Name is Yeh: I was able to meet Molly in person at an event this year, and I just about fainted!! Her blog, cook book, AND baking show are all so uniquely her. Her positive and bright spirit shine through in everything she does, and she is so humble and sweet! Did I mention she bakes with the most unique flavors?! Her recipes are amazing!
Georgia – Georgias Cakes – Georgia is such a sweetheart!! We first were IG friends, then became friends in real life, and I am so happy the internet brought us together! Georgia is a classically trained pastry chef, and her style of decorating cakes is jaw dropping. There’s something so delicate and cheerful about each of her cakes. Everytime I see one of her cakes, I instantly know it’s hers.
Joy Wilson – Joy the Baker: I haven’t met Joy before, but I religiously follow her on Instagram, and love her style! It seems so natural, and I think she is a creative genius. I mean, Drake on Cake?!?! Straight up fire. I love seeing her creations, and her food styling always stops me in my tracks.
