Questions and Answers

Tell us about your company name.

I stole it! It came from the title of a book on the history of wedding cakes.

What drew you to this field/how did you get started?

It was 1993; I was a paralegal and bored out of my mind. The California Culinary Academy mailed me a flyer about their new Baking and Pastry Program. I thought, why not do something I love for a living?

What are 3 words that describe your personality?

Calm. Quiet. Creative.

What's your favorite book/movie/work of art?

My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice. I'm a hopeless romantic!

What's your favorite marriage advice?

Remember that you're not perfect. Every time my husband does something that makes me crazy, I remember that I make him crazy sometimes, too. If he puts up with me, then I can put up with him. It has worked for over 25 years now.

Tell us about your pets, if you have any.

Syra and Rickey are my indoor kitties, adopted from the Easy Bay Humane Society. Torey, Henry and Gregory are my outdoor kitties, adopted from Fix Our Ferals.
