The beginning…


Hello, and welcome to Bacon and Glitter. My name is Candice and I’m a 27-year-old baker, crafter, book lover, and dance party enthusiast.


I have a wonderful husband.


And some pretty fantastic friends.


I enjoy baking delicious things for people, and have been fortunate enough to work at some great bakeries and restaurants over the years. Now I mostly bake from home for friends and family, and I don’t mind that one bit.



The husband and I moved 9 months ago from sunny Southern California to beautiful Portland, OR. We left a lot of stuff behind, but we feel so lucky to now call Portland home.

I decided to start this blog so I can document our adventures in this great city. So check back often for restaurant reviews, current craft projects, recipes, and mostly just things from my daily life.

Enjoy yourself.
