About Me!

Hi, thanks for stopping by, my name is Anna Kosti and I am 18 years old. I live in Larnaca, Cyprus, with my family and I am still going to high school. I fell in love with baking since the age of 9! I started with simple recipes to making complicated and fascinating desserts. I am planning to join university next year, overseas, to become a professional pastry chef.

These Lemon Muffins are absolutely incredible, they are light, fluffy and have a pop of citrusy that just creates the perfect combo of sweet and sour. Make sure to give these a try.

They are topped with a lemon and icing sugar glaze that just takes these muffins to the next level. They are a must try snack.
