Hello, I am so glad that you are here!
Dani’s Cookings is a place for people who love baking and appreciate elegantly presented food. It is a source of unique recipes made with quality ingredients for a healthy lifestyle.
My goal is to inspire you and to help you prepare delicious and beautiful homemade desserts from scratch without the need to spend many hours in the kitchen.
Who is behind this blog?
My name is Daniela – a self taught baker, mother, full time employee at a corporate job during the week, blogger and photographer during the weekend. I enjoy all forms of art and I constantly feel the need to be creative.
This blog started in early 2012 as my virtual recipe notebook, initially meant to present recipes of any kind. But very soon desserts became its main topic. That wasn’t surprising for the people around me: I love eating desserts and since ever I admire beautiful and delicious pastry creations and cakes with gorgeous designs.
To find out more about the blog and how it developed during the years, check the page Blog Resources.
On this page you can read more about the content of this site.
What are you going to find in Dani’s Cookings?
Recipes: mainly desserts and occasionally savoury recipes. All the food presented in this blog is made from scratch, with high quality ingredients and a lot of love. Most of the recipes are simple and not very time consuming.
Baking tips: In many of my recipes and posts I try to give baking advices in order to help you save time and efforts and achieve the best possible results. Recently I decided to gather for you some of my most important tips in a short e-book. I definitely won’t stop here: you can expect me to share even more baking knowledge in the future!
Tutorials and Baking Classes: Teaching others comes naturally to me as I have many years of training and coaching experience in my “real” job. You can find my online courses in Skillshare and occasionally I also teach live classes (check out my Facebook page for updates).
You can see my baking videos on Youtube channel. If you have a specific baking topic you want to learn about, don’t hesitate to write me! In the meantime you can also see my Fondant flowers tutorial or my video How to make a cake with fondant fruits.
If you like my photography style and recipes and you want to get photos and behind the scenes information, you can support me on Patreon. There I offer special benefits and materials available only for patrons.
I invite you also to check my cookbook which you can buy through this blog.
Inspiration: I constantly work on improving my photography and I hope that you enjoy it! If you like the style of my photos and you need stock photography, visit my Creative market shop. I offer stock photography also on Patreon. If you want to purchase specific images that are not in the shop, please contact me at daniscookings (at) gmail.com
