Or heroines, actually. But heroes sounded more catchy. Mmmm.
Anyway, as those of you who have been down the becoming-a-blogger road before, you will know that a blog is really kind of a giant work of art. It requires much creativity, and therefore an equal amount of inspiration. Today I want to introduce you to five AMAZING food bloggers who have inspired me over the years. So without further ado, here they are.
Joy the Baker. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love Joy’s blog. She is a genius of delicious baked goods and blogging. I think the thing I love most about her is that her posts always have a personal touch, so we really get to know the Joy behind the baking. Amongst her endless mouthwatering recipes are Old School Fudge Brownies, Browned Butter Blueberry Muffins, the most impressive looking Red Velvet Cupcakes ever, and loads more. You should have a look. Thank you Joy, for all the inspiration.
Jessie Olsen. I have written about this lady before, she is the brains behind Cakespy. And her artworks are the bomb. Apart from painting the most adorable pictures of Cuppie the cupcake and his epic adventures, she also writes the most wonderful and original food articles, like this one about macarons and madeleins. What a talented lady Jessie is.
Rosie from Sweatapolita. I was never a fan of big cakes, until I discovered Sweatapolita. But Rosie’s cakes are both beautiful AND (although I’ve never tasted one), they look to die for. I don’t know how she makes such amazing cakes. Amongst others she’s done a Chocolate Malted & Toasted-Marshmallow Cake (oh my gosh), a really cute Rainbow Cake and also a beautiful Neapolitan Layer Cake. Go Rosie.
Angie from Lucky Pony. Angie is not a food blogger as such, but she does write about it often enough to make my list. She also runs Wolves Coffee Shop (which I am dying to visit) up in Joburg. Plus, she is a pretty trendy and creative South African girl – all the more reason to read her blog. Have a look at her cupcakes, Nutella fudge, beautiful cakes and more. Keep blogging Angie, you are awesome.
Marina Anne (Pie Face) Pape from Spatula Magazine. Marina doesn’t have her own blog (yet), but she works for Yuppiechef – one of my favorite shops -and writes for Spatula occasionally. I might be biased, since M is also one of my bestest friends, but her posts always make me smile. Read about her meeting Ina Paarman, Justin Bonello and Evan Faull from Knead Bakery. Love you M!
And that, as they say, is a wrap. Hope you enjoyed it :)
