About the guy

Who? Me?

Carlton Baker II

is a man in his fifties who’s had an interest in baking for more than half his life. Texas-born but calling New York City home for for nearly 30 years, he has a 9-5 that has more and more become a means to his baking ends. He got tagged with “Just A Guy Who Bakes” somewhere in the last century and has finally taken that appellation to heart.

This journey of baking discovery began elsewhere, but from now on, this is where you’ll find his musings, inspirations, challenges, failures, and successes. He hopes it’ll be as entertaining and enlightening for you as it continues to be for him.

Within this Journal, you’ll find stories and memories and some recipes that Carlton hopes will entertain and inspire your own baking explorations.
