Who and Where
My name is Nicole and I am a Cake Decorator. I was born in Italy in a wonderful town called Cividale del Friuli in which I left a piece of my heart. But, as it happens (always has and always will) with young dreamers, when I was 20 years old I started my own journey finding Nemo! At first moving 100 kilometers to go to University, then adding another 600 kilometers when I went to Rome, where I spent eight intense years of my life. Now I am living in the UK, to improve my knowledge and skills on modeling and British bakery.
What and Why
I love everything “Homemade”, especially when it comes to food. I smile when I think about a cutting board covered with flour, a wooden spoon with some custard still on it and a food mixer which is doing its job. I am touched by everything that uses natural ingredients, it’s been too long since I used an industrial vanilla extract – now I prefer to make it on my own (a great bottle of Vodka, few vanilla pods and a few months of patience).
The idea of Unicorns eat cookies started to grow in my mind maybe 2 years ago, because I wanted to create a little window on my Universe and every idea running through my creative mind .
A lot of websites and books aspire to reveal every mystery and secret about the (wonderful) world of cakes and cupcakes, but I would like to tell you another amazing story, full of different flavours and colors, where the main characters are … biscuits, cookies, pastry desserts and every sweet you can eat in one bite (or nearly ^_^).
Bake these sweet treats for you and, why not, hire a Unicorn to deliver them directly on your doorstep
****A little note
I like to associate a song to every recipe, the right song which won’t let you think about diet and calories but will let you enjoy this sweet break with no regrets.
Random facts about me:
– I love coffee in bed… brunches… cocktails in company…singing and joking around.
-I think that every experience has its silver lining. I know that sometimes it’s hard to see, especially when we run into tough situations, but I’m firmly convinced that a positive and constructive attitude can help us face every new challenge.
– I am officially a daydreamer.
– We are what we are (see above) but beware: if we begin something we must always resist until the end, accepting only…perfection!
– “Good” isn’t enough… it has to be “Special”
– I am Italian but I’ve converted to tea with milk! I am one of you my English friends!!!! 😉
It’s best to stop talking now, it’s time to bake some goodies. Let’s start, shall we?
A long time ago, far far away, Unicorns were discovered, incredible and pure creatures with a magic horn that purified every poison.
Only few people know that Unicorns are crazy of cookies and biscuits. ^_^
But not all of them, just the ones made with love, those that warm the heart and make you smile… at the first bite.
This is how this blog was born, giving space to the amazing world of biscuits, cookies and small bites of sweetness.
