I have an obsession, a dream, a goal, what ever you want to call it. I think passion would be more apt. I want my own business, a sweets business, everything sweet. This is odd for me since I don’t have a sweet tooth, but still, baking is the thing for me. I absolutely love it. However…. I can’t seem to take off. There is always something holding me back, Some times recipes don’t work right, some times is a money thing, like all times ;) . Most times it was a time thing, not enough just like the money.... It was hard for me to let go of my job, but it was time. I couldn’t get started on my dream with the job I had.
I love working (and laziness, but don’t tell my Hubby), I started at a McDonald's about ten years ago (wow, I can’t believe I said it) It was a fun experience; I learned to respect hard work, and the value of money. From there I move to a hotel and I fell in love. It was the coolest thing until an adventure came along. I got an opportunity to work as a Flight Attendant!!! Can you imagine, your office flying over 10,000 feet all over the
Caribbean. Well that was my job!!! Once that came to an end I went back to the hotel, but it wasn’t the same. I felt something missing, on the professional side of me there was a void. And then I discovered baking. I always have done cakes, but the box cake (which I honestly believe are good.) but then I tried to make one from scratch and it was magic. I couldn’t believe I baked a Cake all by my self, and it was good. The feeling was amazing, and I wanted more. I have to confess I went nuts. I tried everything, cakes, cupcakes, cookies, muffins, flans (crème caramel), and I still wanted more. So I tried cheesecakes, éclairs which were quite scary, and the very much scary French Macaroon.
The outcome… well see for your self. Please beware... It is not that pretty.
The flan (crème caramel)….

The verdict…. I love baking…. I want to learn, improve, excel. I want to make my dream come true, and I want to share it with you. So stay tune for more on my new adventure, well, one of them ;)
Happy, happy, joy, joy!!
