Hi!
I am a cake enthusiast who is very passionate about baking. I have always enjoyed baking and decorating cakes, but I never had the confidence to pursue it as a career. So, I ended up studying as a chemistry major. From time to time, I would still bake and decorate cakes on my free time.
As I studied chemistry, I utilized what I learned in my baking, then I started to realize how much I enjoy the chemistry of baking. As time went on, I made the decision to switch major and choose pastry art as my profession. In fact, I know with the dedication and love that I have for baking I will never allow myself to give up and success will come along the way. My ultimate goal is to open up my own bakery and design wedding cakes. As of now, I hope to gain experience, learn, and challenge myself to everything.
I am currently attending the International Culinary center and will be graduating in two months. I cannot wait to enter the industry and show what I have to offer!
