My name is Stephanie Joslin, owner of Forest Bake. Having grown up in South Africa and worked in various countries I have learned to appreciate a variety of flavours and ingredients which I incorporate into my baking to ensure that my customers get the most out of my creations. Now living in the UK, baking in my kitchen, I work hard to perfect the balance of flavours, textures and of course those beautiful decorations for my celebration cakes. Prior to starting Forest
As well as working on flavours I also work at creating great vegan and gluten free bakes and often with less sugar. I enjoy a healthy diet but I will never leave out the odd treat and there is no reason that treats cannot be healthy. With this in mind I am conscious about what ingredients I’m using, I source good quality ingredients, some from my garden including rosemary which I use for my salt and rosemary ganache for truffles and pears for my pear, cardamom, poppy seed and walnut cake as well as pansies which I crystalise and use as cake decorations.
For special occasions I cater for Vintage Afternoon Teas in the comfort of your own home, using my vintage crockery which I have collected over the years.
I love sharing my knowledge which prompted me to start baking lessons which have proved to be successful.
