About

Hi, my name is Nina but everyone calls me niner, currently located in Germany, but I love to spend time in the United States and Canada – this is where my passion for baking started.
I became a baking blogger in late 2010.

Great you found my blog because I am sure you will enjoy it if you have a passion & sweet tooth for sweets.
Desserts are supposed to be fun, sweet treats makes people happy and ninerbakes.com is supposed to be a fun spot where people can escape to and just dive into the yumminess of sweet, delicious, baked goods.
Besides yummy recipes for cake pops and cupcakes, I love sharing my step-by-step tutorials with all the baking fans out there as well.
I also write about DIY things such as cake pop tags, cupcake toppers, cake bunting, printables that you can use for your next birthday party cake or sweet table.

Besides being a baking blogger, I also work as a graphic-/webdesigner.

I am a real techie geek. Android’s the system!
Photography, good food, all things vintage, Air Jordan gear, country living, crafty & diy things, music and motorbiking, those things make me happy.
Not to forget God who plays a huge part in my life! I’m a Lakewood fan!

Note:
Making desserts is my passion. This is how I can live out my creativity besides sitting in front of the computer and design stuff.
But please keep in mind that all these treats are considered “Sometimes Food”.
Even if my blog is all about sweet stuff, that does not mean that I eat sweets and candy every day! Not at all.
It can be dangerous and it is does not support being in good shape either.
I love to eat healthy and treat my body right; there are exceptions of course because WE ALL have our cravings, right?
Portion control is the key :)
I love to buy organic and fair trade groceries. Especially when it comes to baking ingredients we all can make a huge difference when buying organic eggs for example – even better when you have a farmer closeby where you can actually see the animals and their conditions.

Besides healthy eating and drinking (Green Smoothies and Matcha tea), I am a huge fan of Focus T 25, you might know Shaun T, he is my personal trainer in the digital world :)
I have been trying out many workouts but his workout makes you really move your body and you totally get into good shape and the best thing of it is:
It makes me absolutely happy! I have never experienced that before.
I catch myself laughing during the 25-minute workout (yesss, 25 minutes, so no excuses anymore people, you can do it!!) – it is just so much fun!

In case you guys have any questions, I am always there, so contact me via the contact form.

When you bake something sweet, why don’t you share it with others as well?
This way you don’t feel obliged to eat it all yourself and feel guilty afterwards :)
Like Joyce Meyer would say in one of her videos:
“I am not gonna be bossed around by a cupcake and a cookie and a piece of pie in my whole life. I have discipline and self-control, I will not be controlled.”

Welcome to my blog, pleased to meet ya and I hope you enjoy your stay here!

  9. Hallo liebe Niner,

    Ich finde all das, was du tust, wirklich zuckersüß! Ich würde so etwas soooo gern auch können, aber ich hab in der Hinsicht wirklich 2 linke Hände! Trotzdem möchte ich irgendwann mal einen Kurs bei dir mitmachen. :)
    Bin gespannt, welch ein kreativer Kopf hinter diesen schönen Dingen steckt! ;)

      Ein Kurs ist kein Problem, einfach eine Email an mich über das Kontaktformular senden – und dann kann ich dir Informationen senden.
      Alles Liebe und danke für den tollen Kommentar,

  10. I like you! From the moment I saw your webpage I had known that your name is nina, cause someone used to call me niner, too. :D

    Very nice webpage and awesome recipes. Thumbs up.

  11. Your blog is great, now that i found it I won’t stop to follow you anymore!!! good advises, lovely creations, I will try the recipes soon!!! yummy!!!
    Best,
    Elena alias EMVi

    from Italy =)

  12. I just bumped into your website/blog and I am IN LOVE!!! Clever, cute, colorful and more! I am just getting into cake and cupcake baking for fun and you are a major inspiration plus a wealth of information. I can’t tell you how many blogs I have looked at but yours is the BEST by far. So many of the European blogs are good but not too American friendly…totally the opposite here. You are “world” friendly :-). The photos and recipes are fabulous as well as the stories that go with them. Thank you for your creativity and inspiration, please keep it coming!

    • Leslie,
      I was SO speedless receiving such lovely feedback from you. It made my day – thanks a lot. Had to post it on my FB Wall :)
      Hope you come back soon, happy to have you as a blogreader.
      Many blessings to you,
      niner

  13. <3 Trust me, I'll be back over and over again, just don't you go anywhere <3

  14. Hey niner, ich wollte dir einfach mal sagen, wie wichtig dein Block in den letzten Monaten für mich geworden ist. Da ich auf Grund meiner Krankheit lange zu Hause sein musste, habe ich beschlossen wieder meiner alten Leidenschaft dem Backen nachzugehen. Dabei bin ich auf deinen Block gestoßen. Es ist soooo toll zu lesen, wie lebensfroh du bist. Danke…. Und mach bitte immer weiter. Egal was das Leben dir hinwirft, bleib dir treu…. Es klingt vielleicht banal und komisch, aber backen ist Balsam für die Seele und hat wirklich nichts mit maßlosem Schlemmen zu tun. Süße Kleinigkeiten sind Inseln im Alltag…. Liebe Grüße von Carolin

    • Liebe Carolin,
      ich bin hin und weg von deinem Kommentar. GANZ lieben Dank dafür, da geht mein Herz auf <3
      Hab einen tollen Wochenstart und ich freue mich, dich hier wieder zu sehen :)
      Niner
