I work for the government and bake as a hobby. Would like to open a bakery someday with my best friend who also loves to bake!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing I've baked was probably a tuxedo cake. It was a lot of work but well worth it! So yummy! I also love to try new German recipes since we are German (grandparents came here from Germany). And I also love discovering new & yummy quick meals for dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Come from a long line of sweet-tooths, so I love to bake pretty much anything sweet!
My cooking triumphs
Mastering classic Tiramisu the first time I made it - still one of my favorite desserts! Lot of work and very good!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make my own ladyfingers COMPLETELY flopped. Also had a bad "fluffy peanut butter icing" recipe that was greasy and I ended up pitching. Also iced a red velvet cake too soon the night before Thanksgiving and 2 of the 3 layers cracked in half and fell to the floor.
