What is your signature bake?

My signature bake is cakes. I love creating show stoppers that showcase my talents and leave people inspired to try baking for themselves. I love to see the looks on people's faces when they see my cake art, and just to know that every small detail came from my heart, and I am creating a lasting impression on people makes every tiny stressor so worth it. I love when people refer to my work as "brilliant".

How long have you been baking?

I've been baking since I could stand on a stool in the kitchen with my Grandma. It all started with bake sales, and school events with my mom, getting in any baking experience I could. I have been baking professionally for 10 years. I traveled all around the world, getting inspiration to bake a new tasty treat from each place I've visited. I call myself the "Betty White": in the kitchen; fierce, funny, and a force to be reckoned with. I LOVE BETTY WHITE!!! We even had a party for her

What is your best baking secret?

My best baking secret is: life's too short to be anything but happy. Baking with your heart starts with family, and continuing to keep traditions alive with every morsel of laughter. I started a bakery with my sister, Stephanie, using my grandma's face as our logo. It's called Not Your Grandma's Bakery, and our motto is, "They Just Don't Make Them Like They Used To". Our Grandma is our driving force for everything and is the reason we bake and continue the traditions.
