Lisa is a home baker from a small country town in Australia and couldn’t find a product to help recreate the beautiful cream tarts and cookies cakes on Pinterest, which eventually led her to create her own brand of bakeware to fill this need. She is an accountant by trade, but loves baking and kitchenware, which led her to open her own kitchenware store. Lisa started her first online retail store specializing in sourcing quality cookie cutters from around the world.
