Lisa, my new BFF at work (who befriended me and showed me everything I needed to know when I was a newbie at my recently new day job) is having a baby and her hubby Herb asked me to make the cake for her shower. This was a huge honour for me because Herb fancies himself a pastry chef too (though, he does have far more industry experience then I do) and it's been a running joke between Lisa and myself that when they finally have their wedding, that *I* am going to make the cake. She always said Herb wouldn't have it because he wanted to make their wedding cake. So I told her that at least I would get to make the baby shower cake, and even that she shot me down on saying Herb would probably want to do it. I win! The baby's room is painted blue with an underwater theme. We suspect it's a girl, but we can't seem to find anyone in the medical profession who will confirm it for us. Congrats Lisa!!!
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!
