I've been baking all my life learning a lot from my Mother. She made a crazy Birthday cake for my Father long ago...it was and Emerald Chocolate cake. She used a whole bottle of green food coloring to make this cake green! A very dark green. That cake made everyone pee green!
My career has allowed me to bake cookies and cupcakes for my coworkers and get their feedback on the things they liked best. My wonderful husband has kept me in all kind of cookie cutters so I can practice on all kind of shapes. He encourages my ideas and loves to taste test everything. I've picked up tips from you tube and books and talking with friends. I' have a small business and am doing my cookies whenever it's needed or special orders on requests.
