About Paulina Byrne

My earliest memories of baking takes me back to when I was 7 years old baking cakes for my family. I clearly remember baking banana bread loaves. Lots of them!

I then graduated to baking for neighbours with my worse mistake being pouring a whole bottle of vanilla extract into one cake mix. I was pleased when the neighbour said they loved it.

Life took its toll and after years of studying and heading down the academic path I one day realised I was not satisfied living the 9-5 life style in the IT industry. I made a drastic decision to change career and after years of planning, learning, testing thousands of recipes I built Sponge and Cream.
