Hey there, I’m Cambrea! I'm a professionally trained Pastry Chef and the blogger behind Cambrea Bakes.
I have a degree in French baking and pastry arts and worked as a full-time pastry chef for 6 years. In 2020 I decided to hang up my pastry hat, abandon the bakery life and start sharing beautiful and delicious baked goods on what is now Cambrea Bakes.
I always longed for a creative outlet; working for bakeries can get pretty monotonous! Once you make the same plain blueberry muffin recipe thousands of times, you realize how boring it can be.
This longing for creative recipes supported by my absolute love for food (and sweet tooth) is where Cambrea Bakes was formed!
Here, Cambrea Bakes is a platform for reliable, decadent, and easy-to-make recipes that are creative twists on classic baked goods.
You'll find some of my favorites, like black velvet cake, espresso brownies, lemon bar cookies, and cookie butter cookies as just some of the many recipes available to you!
I know you'll find something you enjoy here. Baking has been a part of my life since I was a child in my grandfather's bakery! I love baking because it is truly a sharing experience. Having the intention of sharing something sweet and delicious with friends, family, coworkers, and myself (self-love is the best love!) and knowing that you are spreading joy is one of the best and warmest feelings ever!
If you have a question or comment about one of my recipes or baking, or just want to say hi, feel free to reach out! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you in 24-48 hours.
Let's be friends! Find me on Facebook, Pinterest, or Instagram! You can also subscribe to my newsletter so you don't miss out on my monthly check-in full of baking tips and recipes.
