Manuela Kjeilen

Passion For Baking

Manuela, her husband and five children led a very comfortable life until something terrible happened and their simple, lovely life disappeared. Her husband suffered a stroke and they almost lost everything.

Manuela knew that she had to do something for her family to survive. With the encouragement of her husband and friends, she started a baking blog. Things moved quickly - though there were many obstacles and tears - and her blog was soon voted as Norway's most beloved blogger.

Today, Manuela has 1.3 million Instagram followers, 5 books, a magazine and a new television series. Success aside, Manuela's goal in life is to inspire people.
