About Liz

cropped-img_2251.jpgWelcome to Beginner Bakes!

I’m Liz Smith Mally, a (very) amateur baker from the U.S. trying recipes from the U.K. I started this blog to share all my cakes, bakes, and mistakes as I work through Mary Berry’s Baking Bible. If you don’t know who Mary Berry is, check out my obsession on Netflix – The Great British Baking Show. I’m spending every week working to become the Beyoncé of baking (or at least someone who doesn’t burn box brownies :)) and sharing some life stuff along the way. Read more about why I started Beginner Bakes here.

Follow along on YouTube and Instagram, and tag your baking photos #beginnerbakes to be featured!
