Feast your eyes and senses as we chat with Julián Ángel, the baker behind the beautiful creations on Historias del CiervoThis Julián Ángel interview will reveal how baking changed his life, and what also what drives this self-made home baker with a passion for food photography.

1. What got you into Baking?

I started working from home as a freelance graphic designer. So I had more free time to cook, savory in the beginning, and after a while, I decided to try baking and it was a disaster at the beginning. So I got almost obsessed with baking simple recipes like cupcakes, cookies, and finally cakes.

2. What determined you to start Historias del Ciervo?

I was learning so many stuff and I am a self-learned baker and cake decorator, so I wanted to share some of the information I was getting to more people. I started following some amazing bloggers, and it seemed like the perfect hobby. This way, I was able to bake, to start practicing photography, share recipes, and do some artistic and personal work as well.

3. What inspires you to keep going, even when the Food’s not Done, the kitchen’s on Fire (Oh god, no!)?

The kitchen is on fire most of the time at home. Not all the recipes or all the ideas come out as expected. I’ve felt very very disappointed many times in my life.

But it is all about passion and when you really feel that strong passion for something you do, you want to keep trying until it works for you. Persistency is the key, and if it also gives you some happiness, then it is really worth it.

4. What’s your Favorite Recipe?

The classic and traditional vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting. It is the most amazing, traditional, and romantic ingredient ever.

5. Want to share your Comfort Food or Guilty Pleasure too?

Comfort food could be a delicious dish of pasta. For guilty pleasures, I always go for high calories sweets like ice cream or brownies.

6. Your biggest Culinary Pride: What dish are you most proud of?

I love most of my recipes, they have a meaning and are linked to a certain moment of my life. But my “Vanilla Bean and Chai Cupcakes” are very good.

10. Beware! Sharp Objects Ahead: Do you Use and Have a Favorite Knife or just any will do?

11. What’s the Best Cooking Tip you ever got?

“Be patient and follow the recipe.”

12. Chef Admiration: Who Inspires you the most?

I mostly love cooking and baking bloggers. Like Linda Lomelino, Eva Kosmas, LocalMilk, Our Food Stories, Passion For Baking, and some other very talented and dedicated people.

13. The Fun Part: What’s the Strangest Thing you’ve Eaten?

Chapulines in Mexico City and Butterfly pea flower in Thailand.

14. One Last Question: What would you advise someone that is just now Learning how to Cook?

Again, follow the recipe. Being creative and an innovator is good as well, but beginners might want to first start by following recipes previously tested by other people. It can avoid a lot of frustrations.
