So to think a year ago from today, I scoffed at the idea of going to the yearly Chocolate Festival that happens in NYC...now I can't wait!
This has been a blessed journey thus far, the people I met who believe in me and support me is amazing. I really do love doing this, and have been slowly perfecting my craft, learning and perfecting the basics, and soaking up as much knowledge as I can.
The question I ask myself, is this something I can do forever? So far my friends and colleagues and people I just meet want more. I take the time to get to know my customers, ask them what they want, LISTEN to them.
Now, here I am, meeting fellow pastry chefs, bakers, cakers, and decorators, debating what makes a better frosting on my latest cake, rolling out fondant, while singing and laughing in the wee hours of the morning.
I am a baker/caker decorator, and I am damned proud of it!
