My name is Barbara, creator & owner of Something Sweet Malahide.

My love for baking blossomed as a child in my Grandmother’s kitchen, in a sunny town on the island of Sicily. From the moment I tasted the velvety, sweet batter of a classic Italian Sponge, I was in love.

My passion for baking was nurtured by the tradition and the knowledge of 3 generations of women from my family, so with whisk in one hand and my family’s recipe book in the other, I started to bake for family and friends.

After a career in Finance, I decided to further my passion for baking and decorating. After completing a Professional Diploma in Baking & Sugar Craft in the DIT National Bakery School in Dublin;  work experience in an Italian patisserie; online tutoring and many hours of practise, Something Sweet Malahide was born. 

My love for baking, art and cake design is a passion and I place great emphasis on exquisite flavours, unique and elegant designs, personally handcrafted to the highest quality.

I believe each Cake is unique, I look forward to creating yours.
