About Me!

Well I guess you can tell I’m made about baking and equally mad about travelling ????

My name’s Joanne although I’m more commonly known as Ickle Jo from my university days, being the small one and all!! I also go by the fond name of Auntie Jojo, cake maker extraordinaire tasked with producing spectacular cakes year after year for my nieces and nephews. And now I’m the Baking Backpacker – combining my two great passions! There’s nothing I love more than finding the best bakery in town when I go travelling!

Over the last few years I’ve been building up a portfolio of cakes I’ve made with next to no training or experience – just a desire to bake and now a desire to share that with all of you!! I’ll also be sharing both my old and new adventures when travelling with @miniadventuring and all my experiences as an Expat in Basel!

Hope someone out there is reading ????
