I’m Alicia Murray and I’m the baker and writer behind She Bakes a Lot. It went to school for communications and art, but found a love for baking when I had my first child.
For his first birthday I decided to learn how to make and decorate his birthday cake. Because I’m a bit Type A and wanting to impress, I took a four-week Wilton baking class at our local craft store. There wasn’t even a sink or oven in the entire place! We baked our cakes at home, and brought them to the store each week with our pastry decorating supplies and decorated cakes for a couple of hours.
Birthday cakes are where I started getting noticed for my baking. One day someone was talking about my cakes and said, “yeah, she bakes a lot.” Thus, the name of the blog!
I also blog about parenting and lifestyle tips over at BalancingMotherhood.com.
