About me

Gender Female
Location Amsterdam, Netherlands
Introduction Also known in some circles as Mevrouw Cupcake, I’m a professional eater, freelance baker, and Kansas native who has lived in the Netherlands since 1998, and Amsterdam since 2003. Since 2006, I’ve been producing homemade gourmet cakes to order and am focusing on growing my love of cake into a profitable small business. I also like to think, discuss, and do a whole lotta other stuff, and that’s what this blog is about.
Interests FOOD! Talking about it, reading about it, looking at it, writing about it, photographing it, cooking it and of course eating it, art house and foreign language films, getting lost in a novel, traveling to place with good regional cuisine, lazing around in my garden
