Julia is a legal secretary in a law firm and also a music teacher, teaching the piano to children. But she also has a market stall selling her cupcakes, spices and biscuits.
“I take off every second Friday to bake. I rent a kitchen in the local sporting hockey club and then I sell on the Saturday.”
Julia has been baking since she was eight years old. The first ‘dish’ she made was chocolate profiteroles.
Julia grew up in the country town of Gladstone and has been married for a year. She met her husband Justin at the pub she used to work at – he was her boss.
Julia is a talented pianist, having studied Music at the University of QLD. She also loves to travel.
“I like to investigate restaurants before all trips, I plan my trips around food.”
Julia has two brothers and two sisters and describes herself as a bright and bubbly person. “I get what I want in in the nicest way possible. I love helping people and in particular, I love feeding them.”
Julia loves cooking anything sweet. “I get excited about the hunt for “THE PERFECT” recipe. I will happily make six different chocolate cakes in a week and critique them.” She says her cooking generally always had chocolate in it.
Julia’s ambition is to have several shop fronts that have amazing handmade treats.
“I want a beautifully designed space with local handmade art, food and coffee. I would also love to do a cookbook that matches what I sell in my shop.”
