Welcome to Crumbs and Corkscrews
Hi, I'm Lou...
... Dessert obsessed baker and busy 9-to-5er, snapper of food photos, and the face behind Crumbs and Corkscrews, guiding you through making deliciously easy desserts you'll want to make again and again!
Based in the UK, my roots lie in the Midlands but I've lived in the beautiful Cotswolds for long enough now to call it 'home'.
Crumbs and Corkscrews began in 2012 as an excuse to keep baking, after I closed my award-winning cake design business and rejoined the corporate world. Now, the blog is about so much more than just bakes. It's about all things delicious, easy and that make life a little sweeter. I share easy to follow recipes for cupcakes, cookies, cheesecakes, brownies, ice cream and more!
I’m so glad to have you here with me and I can’t wait to hear your comments as you start trying some of my recipes.

Lou Carruthers is a professional Leadership & Culture consultant, award-winning baker and passionate foodie on a mission to make life a little bit sweeter with show-stopping, easy bakes. Lou began crumbscorkscrews.com in 2012 as a way to share easy, delicious and addictive baking recipes, plus a sprinkle of travel at home and abroad, to inspire and delight. She is a wife to an equally food-obsessed husband, and aunty to two small, sweet-toothed nephews. Lou lives in the Cotswolds in the UK, and when she's not dreaming about or developing recipes, baking and photographing food, she's trying to move more to burn off extra calories so she doesn't feel so guilty about another slice of cake!
