I’m Connie and I’m a twenty-something self-taught baker and amateur photographer. When you grow up with a mom who is a great cook, a father who farms in the backyard, and a sister who bakes, you are destined to be obsessed with making food. I’m a baker in practice and an all around foodie at heart. There’s nothing that brings people together quite like food does, so I spend a lot of time seeking good food and attempting to make it at home. I started Whisks and Whimsy to chronicle some of the treats coming out of my kitchen and I hope it can serve as a source of inspiration to bakers and non-bakers alike.
On a more personal note, I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, lived in New York City for 6 years, and now live in Houston, Texas. My husband, Andrew, tastes everything I make, and my two dogs, Riley and Cooper, sweep up the crumbs and console me during baking disasters.
