Hi, hello, and welcome to my page, Cambrea Bakes! I'm so glad you're here.
Food and baking has always been such a big part of my life and childhood.
My grandfather was a baker and owned an Italian bakery while I was growing up. I have so many memories of hanging out in the bakery with my family. I used to sneak cookies from the display case pretty much every day. This included me crawling along the floor to get them!!
I also used to steal fresh baked bread from the racks, then I would rip out and eat the soft center and leave the crust (why? because the middle was the softest part, duh).
What was 20 years later, I found myself back into the world of baking and pastries when I decided to go to pastry school after I finished college in 2016.
In 2018 I decided to start up an Instagram page, Cooking With Cam! It was a way for me to share 'healthier' desserts and meals with my friends and family (who literally wouldn't stop asking for some).
Over a years time, in 2019, my blog transformed into what is now Cambrea Bakes. I realized that my true passion was for creating the most delicious, sharable desserts that you just HAVE to make for not just yourself, but also for your friends and family.
I never knew my love for recipe development and food photography could grow to the love and passion for it that I have today.
I want to say thank you so much for coming here and being apart of my family! Here you will find reliable recipes for creative, elevated desserts and savory baked goods. Always putting a fun, creative twist on classic recipes that are sure to impress.
You'll also find lots of how-to vides, baking tips, recipes for all baking skill levels, and lots of yummy photos!
