I wanted to share the first cake I ever made because this truly was the moment that I was hooked on baking. I'll have to admit it took me a whole 6 HOURS to complete it which is ridiculous looking back since it's only two layers on the inside! Haha.
I am so thankful for all the opportunities that I've been given to pursue my passion and am a strong believer that hard work and perseverance will defy all odds. That and a bit of luck. ;)
If you have passions, side projects, hobbies, ANY INTERESTS outside of just working all day, I encourage you to nurture and pursue them! Don't discount them because you never know where life will take you when you believe in yourself.
