The Glitter Cupcake is a joint collaboration between two enthusiastic cooks with a passion for great food, Even though both writers come from very different backgrounds their walk in life has led them on a collision course and the creation of this website. They first met on Instagram and quickly became great friends. Sometimes life is stranger than fiction as it seems they traded places. Jeremy now lives on Rai’s island in Bali Indonesia and Rai now calls Australia home.

Rai fell in love with Australia and now enjoys a professional life working in the insurance industry. Having harboured a hidden passion for cooking and baking Rai recently completed a culinary course at William Angliss collage.
