One of the side perks of this job is getting to see how my customer's lives change and their families grow over the years. When I met Manuela (and her Mom), she was just a kid. Now she's grown into a young lady. I was very glad that she was able to accompany her Mother to pick up the cake - to spite a newly broken foot! It was nice to see how she's grown and changed, and of course the smile on her face when she saw the cake.
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
