My name is Annaliese Vander Baan and one of my biggest passions is baking. I have loved baking ever since I was a child. I would bake often with my grandmothers, aunts, and my mom. Though I love to bake just about anything, I am most passionate about cupcakes. Baking, has been an enduring source and expression of my love. It has been the thread that knits my life together, from memories of grandmother's kitchen, to family and friends’ celebrations. I have baked cupcakes/cakes and dessert bars for numerous weddings, graduation parties, showers and family get togethers.
I grew up in Massachusetts and eventually left New England to follow my passion to become a Special education teacher. I am now graduated from Calvin college with a degree in Elementary and Special education and am teaching full-time. Along with my love of baking, I absolutely love running and God. I feel the closest to Him when I am doing either of these things.
I have a niche for tag sales and collect vintage china ware. If you have an event where you would like vintage china, vintage cake stands, cupcakes/baked goods, I am your girl! I am now living to Rhode Island.
