The house I grew up in outside Oslo in Norway, had a large live-in kitchen. My mother always cooked and baked a lot; actually she still does, and from a young age I loved to spend time with her in the kitchen. I watched, smelled, tasted and helped and I loved it. That’s where my passion for baking began.
Through compulsary cooking lessons at the elementary school, I learned to work independantly in the kitchen from a young age. I must have been about 12 years old when I baked a cake for each of my family members for the holidays. The enthousiastic reactions were perhaps the start of my cake adventure and in the years that followed, I baked a lot. I always brought a cake with me when I went to visit someone.
Fast forward to my student years in Israel and I was meeting my parents in law for the first time. Of course I had baked a cake, I believe it was the Norwegian bløtekake. My father in law finished his piece of cake in silence, looked at my boyfriend and said calmly: ‘she may stay’.
8 years ago I started Taart voor jou, small and careful, step by step. By now, Taart voor jou has become more than a full time job and I regularly have assistants coming in to help processing all the assignements and orders on time. In September 2020, I had an amazing new kitchen built, attached to our house. My own cake studio, complete with all the space and facilities I could wish for! Half a year later, I had this amazing new website built by the ladies from Sure Connection, with the gorgeous fotos by Storytime Media.
I am so proud and happy with what Taart voor jou has become; THE place to order your cakes and sweets for any occasion! Thanks to you, my amazing customers, Taart voor jou has become a succes and I am more than grateful for that. I look forward to lots of new cake adventures with you!
