I am currently going to school at The Culinary Institute of America for a baking and pastry degree. I love working with cakes, and experimenting with recipes! My dream job would be working in a test kitchen as a research chef for a mojor corporation or magazine. I would also love to make wedding cakes in my free time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Easter, making bunny rolls with my grandma, cooking thanksgiving dinner with my entire family, making strawberry jam in the summer, Sunday pork roast lunch at my parents' house, decorating Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Receiving a high pass grade on my fifth term baking practical exam! I was so proud of how I did!! I worked so hard!! Learning to make gourmet meals with only my hot pot, clothes iron and a microwave! Dorm room cuisine!
My cooking tragedies
I made a small three tiered cake for a project in class. I was trying to transport it to my sister's house but I didn't realize the top fell off creating a landslide down one side of the cake and destroying the handmade gumpaste flower topper! I was so upset!
