Homemaker, mother of five, grandmothers to 13. Actively working since I was 16. I have a long history in retail and food service from working on the turnpike to assistant manager at Arby's.
I have been baking cookies, candy, fudge, cream puffs for what seems like forever, but in the last five years I have been working almost exclusively with cupcakes. I have been perfecting a frosting recipe but need some help with the batter, since I have been using mostly store bought and adding to it to get the textures and flavors I want.
I also want to up my game in learning how to decorate a better cookie. I don'e have much experience with royal frosting. I need to work on my piping and flow work. I watch all those baking show and see such amazing work and I want to be able to be half that good.
My goal as I approach 60 this month is to establish my own cottage business that I can run now and through retirement until I decide I would like to pass it on to my children. I have one or two who would like to be a part of this profession. I believe it would be a fine legacy to pass on.
