Jude Somers: Baker Bio
Retirement in Victoria is sweet for this former animator who injects her baking projects with fun.
Hometown: Kamloops and Salmon Arm, BC
Currently Resides In: Victoria, BC
Occupation: Retired Animator
Baking Style: Animated & Quirky
Butter Tarts, with raisins or without: With… and with bacon sometimes too!
Jude's love of baking was inspired by both her grandmothers. "One made the best bread, the other was amazing with pastry – thanks to both of them, I learned to be tough with bread, and light with pastry," says Jude. As an animator, Jude injects whimsy and fun into her baking, especially in the decorating. Being retired allows her lots of time to bake for her husband and 86-year-old mum. "I'm having so much fun! Retirement is good!!"
