I would call this an accidental hobby.
While studying in U.K. I had a bunch of very (here I mean VERY) supportive housemates who ate all my baked (and underbaked) products. They always said it's ok mel it doesn't look that nice but it tastes fine (you know who you are). That time I was on a mission to create the best brownie!
I started "experimental" baking more seriously as a way to release my work stress. I found myself looking forward to going home to bake after work. That is when I played around with flavours and adapting the recipes to suit my taste and the "Baking lab" officially started.
One of the many cupcakes baked to get the right recipe
The Quirky Taste is the brainchild of my then colleague (thank you darling) and I where she is a self taught chef and me the baker! Without her support and my fiancé's help the baking wouldn't have reached the level where it is today.
