Let’s Be Pen Pals


Hello, I’m Anna!

I am beyond excited to welcome you to my happy place. My new look website has been many months in the making and now I am finally able to share it with you. Woo Hoo! (Insert happy dance and group hug).

A little about me for all of you new Lovelies.

I am a country girl at heart living in the beautiful Northern Rivers of NSW, Australia. Married for over 30 years to my partner in love, life and family, we are raising the youngest three of nine children. My love of baking has grown from making daily muffins to feed my brood, to creating more decorative bakes for family and friends and eventually the launch of my biz to share the cake love far and wide. The kitchen has always been one of my favourite places and baking a soothing tonic for me during the busy decades of child rearing, homeschooling and pastoring.

Five Fun Facts

Finally, I’d like to leave you with Five Fun Facts about Mama Bear to help you get to know the heart behind the apron.

1. Grooving to 70’s disco or 80’s awesomeness is one of my favourite things to do. If I hear a cool beat no matter where I am, cafe, supermarket, my kitchen, then this mama will shake her booty.

2. England is my favourite place in the whole world and I would live there (in Bath) if I could. The weather alone makes my heart soar! Last year I had the enormous privilege of visiting the UK for the first time and I found where my soul lives.

3. Favourite movies involve anything with monsters, end of world drama or dinosaurs. I am obsessed with Stranger Things and have watched the whole series more times than is probably appropriate for a middle aged woman.

4. I hate Summer. There, I said it. Don’t judge me.

5. Tolkien, Jane Austen and the Brontes are my favourite authors. The Lord Of the Rings and Jane Eyre are without a doubt two of my favourite books.

It has been wonderful chatting with you. Thank you so much for taking the time to catch up. Id love to hear from you, so feel free to leave and comment and introduce yourself.

Have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you next Saturday morning.


  • Surely we take a poll on how many times we think you have watched Stranger Things? Hahaha
    Looking forward to Saturday mornings with tea and your stories! Website looks awesome xx
