My good friend Larissa requested a cake for her son's second birthday, which was a great excuse to get to see her. Life gets busy, so we don't always have time to catch up, but cakes are a great excuse to stay in touch! I was able to re-create, almost exactly, the picture she sent me. Declan was thrilled as soon as he say Thomas on top of the cake!
Getting to help celebrate people's important life moments is the best part of this job. Four years after their wedding, Gurveen asked me to surprise his wife with an anniversary cake.
His wife had also passed the bar exam that same week, so he requested a cake to celebrate. He also wanted both cakes to be a surprise, so i had to lie to his wife when she asked for a cake to celebrate her becoming a lawyer. It broke my heart to lie to her, but I think she understood in the end.
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!
