Welcome to The Humming Oven. This is my first post and hopefully, not my last!
A little about me – my name is Ashanthi and I’m a cake/baking enthusiast, social justice activist and solicitor, among other things. I decided it was time to start a baking blog where I could share my experiences and improve upon my craft and hopefully help you improve yours!
So why did I start this blog?
When I bake, I find my zone of contentment – my zen. I love to bake and I love to decorate cakes, it brings me joy, and I want to share that joy with other people and help them to create their own works of art. I think there’s always a way to make something easier and hopefully that’s what I can do for you!
What is The Humming Oven about?
The Humming Oven is about my adventures and exploits in the baking and cooking world. I’ll catalogue my failures and successes and tell you how you can avoid pitfalls. I’ll share my inspiration and my works and hopefully it will inspire you to get baking!
My philosophy is that you should have a healthy balance in all aspects of your life and there is of course a place for fitness and diet in my life, but there is also a place for cake! When you decide to indulge every now and again, I hope that my blog inspires you to create something that makes you feel warm and fuzzy – from all that sugar!
To give you some idea of where I started and where I’m at now – here are some photos:

If I can do it, so can you. Here’s to the start of something sweet
