Meet the baker
Hi I'm Amy! This is a space for me to tell you a little bit about myself so lets get started :)
I am a baker based in Glasgow, I have had three years of training in professional cookery and patisserie from Dundee and Angus College and City of Glasgow College. I have been baking cakes for family, friends and myself since I was 12 years old and have always loved what I do.
In 2020 I was diagnosed with coeliac disease and thought this would be a major bump in my career but I decided to turn it around and start my gluten free baking journey.
For those of you who may not know coeliac disease is an immune disorder where your immune system attacks your tissue whenever you eat gluten, this then damages your gut which causes your body to be unable to absorb nutrients which can lead to things such as iron deficiencies. So overall it's not a great time, however once diagnosed it is a very easy fix as all your body requires is a gluten free diet. Once you've been on a gluten free diet for a month or two your body has started to fix itself and you can go back to enjoying your life as normal and eating delicious cakes from Whip.
what is coeliac
At the beginning of each month I will share a new recipe. All the recipes that I am going to be sharing with you have been made countless times and tweaked endlessly to come up with the best possible product. Most of the time gluten free recipes have a massive list of ingredients that you end up having to buy some of them online but I have specifically tailored these recipes so that everything you need can be found in your local supermarket.
Are you not a fan of baking? Not to worry! Here at Whip we have something for everyone so head over to the shop page to find some delicious goodies that you can get delivered straight to your door!
