Welcome to the sweet life! I’m Claire, the writer, baker, photographer, spoon-licking taster, and excessive sprinkle user behind The Simple, Sweet Life. And I’m here to help you bring out your inner badass baker and sweets decorator. Here, you’ll find everything from the basics of cookie decorating, to show-stopping sweet breakfast loaves, and everything in between! No matter what your skill level or what kind of baked goodies you like, you’re sure to find something here to sweeten up your day!
For those of you interested in learning more about the ins and outs of food blogging, there’s an entire section of this blog dedicated just to you! There you’ll find posts about food photography, social media, and setting your food blog up for success, as well as the occasional worksheet to get you on your way (just because we’re virtual besties now).
Want to know a little more about me?
I’m a foodie, through and through. I believe the best way to make friends is through food bribery, and that a party isn’t a real party without a cake (or two… and cupcakes… and sprinkles…). I have no formal training in the culinary arts, and have learned everything I know from amazing people in my life, and by trial and error (lots and lots of error). The same can be said for my blogging skills.
Although an Oregon native, I currently reside in beautiful western Norway with my husband Kim (aka Gubby) and our delightfully grumpy furball, Komle (aka The Little Man).
