“This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!”
I love cakes.
I remember my first time baking. My mother let me loose in the kitchen with a packet of cupcake mix , 1/2 dozen eggs and her one and only, scratched and chipped Pyrex mixing bowl. Magic was about to happen- this was alchemy! The feeling of excitement as I waited for my prize to emerge from the oven – the thrill of the bake! The butterfly flurry of imagination as I thought about how to decorate the cupcakes. Packet instructions be damned- I was exploring new worlds! Alas, the cupcakes emerged burnt and I resorted to licking the surplus mix from the spoon. But as they say, “If at first you don’t succeed…” and so here we are.
Mr. Mom’s was born out of my passion for baking and my role as a stay-at-home dad. It seemed the natural thing to do – “Mr. Mom” by nature and now “Mr. Mom” by name. I want my love of baking and passion for flavours to bring others as much pleasure as it brings me, my family and friends.
All my bakes are made to order in my kitchen, ensuring the freshest quality and taste. I mix, bake and decorate each cake myself to ensure only the best hand-crafted bakes reach you. I carefully choose quality ingredients for each flavour and make sure that nothing leaves me that I wouldn’t be happy with. Trust me- I’ve eaten a lot of cake in my time. I also have some pretty harsh critics in my partner and two children!
Here, at Mr. Mom’s, I offer a range of flavours from the classics to the modern and quirky. Seasonal varieties are a passion for me- baking flavours to evoke the time of year. Whether it’s pumpkin and spice at Halloween, or eggnog and nutmeg at Christmas, there’s nothing better than capturing the spirit of the season in that little paper wrapper in the palm of your hand. Please do check my “Flavours” page from time to time for the availability of seasonal specials.
Go ahead, look around my blog-site and have fun finding your favorite flavours. I’m sure they would be ideal as a thoughtful gift to someone special, or as an indulgent treat to yourself.
