My name is Fliss Murdoch, I’m 19 years old and I am currently a student at the University of Exeter studying a joint honors Maths and Sports science. Most of my time is taken up with lectures, coursework, catching up on lectures and training with the university’s trampoline club, however in the spare time I manage to find (or time procrastinating when I should be doing any of the things listed above) I can be found on Instagram or Pinterest looking for baking inspiration – I’m officially addicted to both! I’ve been baking since before I can remember and love to experiment and try out new recipes. I currently live with 7 other students (who’ve kindly offered to act as my guinea pigs) so naturally the demand for baked goods is pretty high – especially during exam season and deadline periods!
I set up @bakingwithfliss on Instagram just over two years ago now to avoid spamming friends and followers with an obscene amount of photos of cake, cookies, brownies/ everything and anything that would tempt them to stray from their attempt to be healthy. I’m over the moon with how successful it’s been, I honestly never imagined that I’d get more than a few hundred followers let alone six thousand!
SO, I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and set up a blog for my baking in order to share my recipes, baking tips and general experiments in the kitchen. Uni life is pretty hectic but I’m going to do my best to post regularly and keep you guys up to date with my baking shenanigans. I hope that you’ll enjoy my recipes and that there will be something (or lots of things) that’ll make their way into your kitchen!
I’m lacking in recent photos of me ‘in action’ baking so here are a few from back in the day when shreddies and rice were my main go-to ingredients.
