Hi, thanks for visiting BIP!

me I’m Marianne, living and baking in Tel Aviv, Israel.

A full blooded Finn in Middle East. I work as a customer care manager in an inspiring telephony startup and on my free time I like doing different things from long walks with my hubby and our 4 year old Chipin named Peach, doing crafts, puzzles, mosaics to cooking for my awesome, supporting husband who also helps me with the technical side of this site.

I’m a home/self-taught baker. I love trying new flavours and combinations and taking on challenges. I started this blog to keep track on my recipes, decorating attempts and progress in both baking and blogging, and hopefully in food photography too.

I love cute things and have a collection of Hello Kitty stuff hidden in our bookshelf drawers. Naturally as a Finn I’m obsessed with Scandinavian design and like to keep filling my kitchen cupboards with new Moomin cups and iittala.

I am baking in the heart of our home, a small kitchen maxed out with storage and working space, designed together with a local carpenter.

You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram , PinterestTumblr and Yummly.

I welcome your comments and suggestions and please, feel free to share!

x Marianne
