‘Sweet’ by Julie Mauro
“I was with my dad when I baked my first chocolate cake. I was about 7 years old. I could do everything but cut the butter and whisk the white with the mixer as it was deemed too dangerous. I remember that I was having fun. I think this is how it started.”
“Being French, my family enjoys its food – both cooking and eating it! I used to spend hours in the kitchen watching my grans cooking. No matter what compliments my friends give me on my baking, my cakes will never live up to the memory of theirs. They both were the best teachers and the best cooks.
“Baking for me is a hobby. Being in a kitchen trying new recipes is a way to forget about my day. It’s my equivalent of gardening or painting. Although it helps me to relax, most importantly I love baking because cakes make people happy. There’s nothing better for me than seeing a smile on a kid’s face while he is eating cake.”
“About a year ago, I started baking for my company and some of my friends. I hope that one day I’ll be able to sell my cakes and perhaps run a small café where people can come and have a lovely day thanks to my cakes.”
