Welcome to Yums & Mums!

We are so happy to have you and hope you follow along our journey of becoming modern day homemakers while juggling the corporate life. 

As we graduated from college and became working gals, we both took to spending more time cultivating our hobbies. We have spent countless hours these past couple years fumbling through difficult baking techniques, figuring out why a recipe with thousands of 5 star reviews doesn’t actually taste good, urging our herbs to grow, and making batches upon batches of just decent buttercream frosting. We have often discussed with each other tips and tricks we’ve discovered or doctored up box cake recipes that earn the title “best cake I’ve ever eaten.” So, that is where this blog idea originated. We wanted to 1) continue to develop our hobbies into skills and do the things we love and 2) hopefully help some people in a similar position through our mishaps. Join us as we share shortcut baking recipes, tried and true recipes, small space gardening tips, and any failures along the way!

Behind the name: yums relates to the treats we are learning to bake, and mums is Katie’s favorite kind of flower (chrysanthemums). Yums & Mums was the perfect, catchy combo of our blossoming hobbies!

I like the idea of baking. I’d like to be good at it. But I feel like I’m young and one day I can be.  Thu Tran
