FOODIE1010'S MENTOR PROFILE
My Cake Corner
Why I want to be mentor in this category:
Experience, and the need to make everyone as satisfied as I get when you see the pleasure on someone's face after tasting your creation.
What inspires me in this category:
I watched my grandmother in the kitchen create some wonderful things from her head; not one recipe, and she never wrote anything down.
Been baking since I was 10, when I got my first cookbook. Also have been competitively baking for 30 years.
Biggest Lesson Learned:
You will never know more about baking than someone else. Keep your eyes and ears open to pick up tips.
Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
Reading hundreds of cookbooks cover to cover, cooking shows on television, and tips from my competitive peers.
Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
Hundreds of ribbons and certificates, and being self-taught with no culinary degree.
- Know what flavors/ingredients compliment each other, substitutions can be fatal to the outcome.
