As I take professionalism and quality seriously, at 23 I worked and trained as a Pastry Chef under Chef Calum at Holborn Dining Room. Here I worked full time and ran my business working up until 3am and on my days off!
My name is Rose, I'm 24 and I run The Bluehaired Baker making all your gorgeous bakes.
The Bluehaired Baker was born in a Kennington kitchen when I was 19yrs old. I registered the business at 21 and began baking for family and friends until word spread and social media kicked off.
I am from and based in South London. It's where you may have met me in my 2019 Spring 'Peckham Levels' Pop Up!
Everything I make is firstly made with love, but I also aim to keep my work cute AND kind. Only Free-Range eggs, Fairtrade sugar, sustainably sourced chocolate and no artificial flavours are used in TBB bakes. Over 90% of my packaging is also recyclable.
I get asked about the business name a lot, I understand though, as I am often sporting different shades of the rainbow.
However, I've been baking since primary school; running lunch time classes with younger students, inspired by my first ever 'easy bake' book in Year 2 and the different pictures on the pages of my nan's cookbook handed down to my mum. A long time before I knew what dye was.
Those pictures and pages would create a spark in me that lived forever, when I reached 19 and straight out of college me and my blue curls began working as a commis baker in Central London. I felt as though I had I had finally re-found my purpose, and in those defining moments, I chose to create
The Bluehaired Baker.
The name pays homage to the little girl who dreamt of all this and also to the freedom of creative expression.
