Sheryl (@sherbakes)

Sheryl taught herself how to bake by consuming as many blogs, books, cooking shows and videos she could get her hands on. She is constantly whipping up new experimental desserts to share with the most important people in her life - family & friends.

Besides creating, Sheryl also loves tasting the best of the best. Her love for food and travel has taken her around the globe in search of the next gastronomic delight. She sees photography as a medium to share food with the world, especially the local gems Singapore has to offer.

Sheryl started using social media as a way to document her journey as a baker and to remember the memorable things she ate. Over time, this developed into a habit and became second nature to her.

When you started, did you create an elaborate plan or was it very casual?

It was very casual.

Do you have any inspirations you look to for your content?

Plenty actually and all mainly food blogs – 8dayseat, Tastemade, Foodgawker, Feedfeed, Food52. Pinterest is also amazing as it has a lot of content. You will never run out of ideas. My top favourites are @sallysbakeblog @thefeedfeed @amauryguichon @cedricgrolet

What are your top 3 favourite dishes and which place served it best?

1. Wanton Mee - Eng's Wanton Mee

If there were a dish that was your nemesis on this food journey, what would it be?

I don’t eat things that are alive and moving. They totally freak me out.

What advice do you have for those who might want to start food blogging or Instagramming?

Be real, genuine and most importantly be yourself.
