What made you start or get into this type of work?
It all started five years ago with a box of cake mix and some icing when my mom asked me if I could make some cupcakes for her to take to work. It wasn’t long until I discovered this was my passion and what I was meant to do.
What are some struggles/challenges you have within your industry?
Lack of respect. I’m a firm believer in earning your respect. But once you have, you shouldn’t have to beg for it.
What is some advice you would give to someone starting off in your profession?
Hard work will always pay off. It may take a while though. Don’t give up. The bakery industry is cutthroat, but worth it if you make it.
