My musing begins with a color palette and ends with community. I enjoy being able to express my artistic side and I just so happen to be inclined to do so with cake even though I don't really have a sweet tooth. There is something about a meringue that invigorates me. I also love a good challenge. To be frank, every time I decide to make a cake I'm excited, but when it comes to actually putting it together, I become afraid that I won't be able to pull it off. When in culinary school I did worst in baking in pastry. So how did I end up here? Only by the grace of God, He placed this gift within me. To be able to fully express my gift, I choose not to be bound to a client by selling my cakes but instead inviting others to participate with me in the experience.
Most of my stories now begin with cake. Though this cake is small, it has a great story. 6 months ago, I met someone, modest and kind with a desire to learn to bake. I opened my email to receive a message from her, typed out as well as she could with her broken English and she wanted to learn to bake- from me!
A humble relationship began. She is beginning to spread her wings as a baker and I am thrilled to see her soar. In 2 short weeks, she will depart for home on the other side of the world.
This cake is a great memory of something that we created together. She's perfected my recipes, although I decorated this cake, she baked it by herself. Bright, sweet and lovely just like she, this cake is.
