My name is Jessica Marsden and I am a 26 year old baking fanatic!
Aside from those ‘simply add water’ fairy cakes you make as a child, 2012 saw my first ever attempt at home baking. My friend and I decided that we were going to tackle making a ginormous Rainbow Cake and it was going to be the most amazing cake. After what felt like an eternity later, here was the end result:
It was this exact cake that ignited my passion for baking and since then it has been a whirlwind of frosting, sprinkles, chocolate chips and brownies! Find the recipe for the rainbow cake here.
I started this blog back in March 2013 as a way of storing my recipes, however since then (thanks to my lovely readers and followers) I have been able to share my recipes and baking love with several magazines and online recipe blogs.
I try to upload a mix of traditional classics with a twist and showstopper bakes that are simple and easy enough so that anyone can recreate them. I love nothing more than seeing my readers use my recipes, so give me a follow on Instagram @jessiecakesdiary and send me pictures of your bakes.
My all time favourite recipe is my Malteser Brownies, they are so simple yet every bite tastes like gooey, chocolatey heaven. If you only bake one thing from my blog, please let this be it. They should come with a warning though…you will want to eat them all!
Oh and one more thing, if you wondering who those adorable fluff balls are above then let me introduce you to Alfie & Freddie, my two beautiful doggies!
That’s all for now, enjoy having a look around my little space on the internet, if you have any questions, please leave me a comment as I am more than happy to help! Happy baking – Jess x
