We love to get a little bit "extra" at The Cozy Plum...
Hey, I'm Callan! Baker, photographer, and brains behind The Cozy Plum!
The Cozy Plum is your one-stop shop for impressive, elevated bakery-inspired desserts, savory bakes, and pastries! We love to take the classics and kick them up a notch and we're always looking to level up the flavors and visual appeal.
Joining us on this corner of the internet will lead you through a transformative baking journey. We will always encourage you to try your hand at bakes you never "thought" you could tackle. Because guess what? You can and you will!
While I have never had any professional training, my intense passion for baking and cooking has been rooted in me since toddlerhood. Everything I have learned has been from reading, watching, and doing...over, and over again.
I have put in all the work, fails, and details so that you can be successful in round one and never have to second guess yourself. While there's always more to learn, what I have learned is that anyone can bake - especially pretty things - with the right support.
That's where The Cozy Plum comes in!
Having fun in the kitchen is my #1 goal and I try not to take myself too seriously...you shouldn't either!
The primary goal of the baked goods we create is to inspire a sense of beauty and pleasure, and to leave you longing for just one more bite. When you make these recipes in your own kitchen, we hope you feel the same love and care. Thank you so much for joining us on this indulgent journey!
