1. You're a self taught baker... how did your love of baking start? How long have you been baking?
I started to become interested in baking about 18 yrs ago. I was fascinated by not just making cake but everything from meringue, to pastries and the process that goes into making baked goods. Around that time I started working at a little bakery outside of Chicago. I loved watching the girls work their magic on birthday cakes and wedding cakes. I worked on sugar cookies, decorating them with royal icing. I guess I was the "cookie girl" at the time! I will always have great memories of that place! I am a cake designer for a boutique hotel in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and I also teach basic and advanced cake decorating and wedding cake class. I LOVE everything cake - which I'm sure you have heard before! I never went to baking school or anything like that; I actually have a bachelors degree in fine art/graphic design.
