"I’ve gotta be honest . . . I was never much of a dessert person when I was younger, in fact, I was terrified of baking. Every batch of biscuits stuck to one another, every cake came from a cardboard box, and meringue, forget it! The perfectionist in me gave up on trying and I regrettably resorted to sad, store-bought, bland and boring cakes.
It wasn’t until I took on a job as a personal Chef whilst living in the United States, that I realised I’d found my true passion and my calling, even if I felt like I’d be thrown in the deep end at first.
What transpired surprised even myself. This new colourful world of delicate, artistic desserts captivated me. I couldn’t get enough. My previous aversions melted away and my creative imagination took over. It wasn’t work anymore, it was art, and the possibilities were endless.
I couldn’t stop obsessing over everything that was sweet, but there was so much more to learn and experiment with. After my move back home to W.A., I worked alongside some brilliant Chefs who pushed me to be better, to create ‘joy’. I didn’t want to do anything else anymore. This was it.
Grab a Spoon emerged when I took a leap of faith. I wanted to create happiness for myself and others every day, not just once in a while. To embody a smile in a slice of cake. To celebrate life with a rain of sprinkles. To realise the secret ingredient is always love.
So, say yes. Embrace the moment. Eat the cupcake. Look through the eyes of a child staring at a candle. Acknowledge the possibilities of the happy couple cutting a cake in celebration. The world is so serious the majority of the time. Life is what you make it, so make it count. Grab a Spoon and dig in".
