Hi everyone, welcome to Sugary & Buttery!
my name is Melina, I’m a passionate cake baker/eater and food photographer born and raised in Germany. The first-ever word out of my mouth was “Kuchen” (German for cake) on my first birthday and I think my fate was decided right there. It was a sign. I love to come up with new creations, experimenting in the kitchen and mixing new flavors and ideas with old family recipes. Also, I’m a true believer in “a messy kitchen is a happy kitchen”. It’s just not as fun without the mess.
I started this blog in 2012 mainly for two reasons: to have a creative outlet for my baking-obsessed, photography-enthused, always-need-to-make-something-and-be-creative self, and to share some of my recipes with friends and family. After my first post, I was surprised about the response I got and the number of clicks from people all over the world! I was amazed about how many people are actually interested in what I’m doing here. So, I keep on going and hope you join me on my kitchen adventures.
If you would like to work with me and are interested in sponsored posts, product reviews, brand partnerships and other collaborations, let’s connect!
