I've been baking all my life learning a lot from my Mother. She made a Birthday cake for my Father one time...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!
I've had a career in the medical field and couldn't give my complete attention to building a business so I would bake cookies and cupcakes for my coworkers and get their feedback on the things they liked best. I've taught myself the things I know and my skills will only get better now that I'm retired. I've picked up tips from you tube and books and talking with friends. I'd like to have a small business doing something part time or even work with someone if the chemistry is right. I want to do this now for myself and hope I have the ability to make it happen.
