I have been in the baking world since I was a child. I did Home Economics in High School learning the basic methods of baking, pastries, creating menus for special occasions. It peaked my interest and I started baking for special holidays within my family.Once I graduated I pursued Business & IT but it did not keep my attention for long before I landed in the Hospitality Business. I worked as a bartender for 2 years and then went into the Realty business .As I got married and had my 2nd daughter, I decided to start a catering business in August 2008. I have been baking ever since.The pursuit to happiness led me to moving to the United States in late 2015. I soon went to work in a retirement home where I was the only baker. I saw items going faster than I could produce them and compliments were coming in daily from the dining hall from many guests of the lovely residents.My heart was set on getting back into the professional cake world so I jumped ship and went to work for a local bakery as a Cake Designer in 2018. Due to Covid19 they closed permanently.I have been in this field for over 10 years and every year brings new challenges that I try to adapt to and go with the flow of what my clientele needs are.
