Hey, I am Nelly Ritchie, foodie, mum and social media junkie from Newcastle Upon Tyne.
My blog title is rather deceptive. I do enjoy a cupcake as much as the next person, however, the blog focuses on so much more. For the past 6 years the focus of this blog has been baking and cooking. I love to experiment with both sweet and savoury (and sometimes both together). The majority of my posts are food-related, however this is a personal blog and within the last 6 years my life has changed dramatically. I have gone from being an impoverished student learning to cook on a budget, to being in a couple learning to plan, cook and bake for more than just me, to a Mum cooking for a family.
I am starting to branch out into more parenting and lifestyle posts too, as it is such a big part of my life now.
I did take a break from blogging during pregnancy and early parenthood, but I am steadily rebuilding my blog, now averaging over 6500 page views per month and a domain authority of 26. I have 600 facebook page likes, 2472 twitter followers, 1338 instagram followers and almost 2100 pinterest followers. (updated January 2017)
As well as blogging about baking, in 2012 I was filmed for an episode of Baking Mad with Eric Lanlard, which was aired in March 2012 on channel 4 (UK).
