When and how did you become interested in developing your own recipes? How did you go about developing original recipes when you first started doing so? I first became interested in developing original recipes a little over three years ago, just before I launched Oh, Ladycakes. From the moment I started the site I knew I wanted it to be a place that pushed and challenged me to create something completely original—not only for myself, but for my audience as well. There were (and still are) a lot of times when I'd spend entire days in the kitchen and have nothing to show for it, but I like to think that it made me a better baker. To this day, there's still nothing more rewarding than testing a recipe—one that I created from scratch, with my own two hands—and having it turn out just right. Even if it took me eleven or twelve or thirteen tries.
