Hi and thank you so much for visiting SpecialtyCakeCreations!
I am Regina and currently I am on a long-term travel adventure with my husband, Konrad. For the last 1.5 years we’ve been in and around Southeast Asia. Before we set out to travel I had a specialty cake business in Canada. All the fancy, decorated cakes in my earlier posts are from that time.
Baking is my big love and passion but right now it has to give way to my other love of travel. (If you are interested you can read more about our travels on our blog a Nomad’s Dream.)
So nowadays I like to share easier, uncomplicated recipes with you. After all, I am traveling with a limited amount of items and at times we don’t even have an oven or a proper kitchen. In these times you can find no-bake recipes or decorating ideas for store-bought cookies or cupcakes.
Even when we have a full kitchen and an oven I like to keep things simple. Usually we don’t stay at one place longer than one or two month, so it would be hard to stock up on all scratch-baking ingredients that frequently. For that reason you will also find recipes here that use box mixes.
Our love for coffee has us exploring the café scenes around SE Asian cities. Along with great coffee there will often be layer cakes, cupcakes, macarons, muffins, cookies or other local specialties. I am always up to trying something new and often I will share these new findings on the blog.
In between our long-stays we also do faster travel – definitely no baking in those times. But don’t be fooled. I am kind of an addict and can’t stay away from baked goodies for too long.
I always try to find recipes from other food bloggers to go along with the creations I share here but haven’t made myself. This way you can recreate these desserts at home and also get to know other food bloggers.
I hope you will join me and follow along in my dessert adventures from around the world. If you happen to live where we are traveling at the moment, give me a shout and maybe we can share a sweet treat or two together.
I always love your feedback. If you found something helpful or have some suggestions, I am excited to hear from you! You can leave a comment with a post, use the contact page, or email me directly at regina @ specialtycakecreations dot com.
