Le Cordon Bleu school in Sydney
Upon arrival in Australia, I decided I wanted to give culinary school a try. I lived about 3 hours north of Sydney, and there was a Le Cordon Bleu school in Sydney, so I enrolled in their Patisserie program. I truly love what I do because I drove 3 hours there, attended 8 hours of classes and kitchen time, and then drove the 3 hours back home, 3 days a week! I completed the Basic Patisserie Course, and was about half way through the Intermediate Course when I ended up suffering from a major spine injury, and I had to withdraw from the school. I never stopped learning though. After 2 years of therapy and rehabilitation, I was back on my feet, and the move to Europe was fast approaching.
I continued to collect recipes, try new ones, and hone my skills with pastry at home once settled in Germany. Word got around that I was the “go to girl” for desserts, and soon I was the dessert provider for every party and pot luck. I didn’t mind, believe me! Then someone saw a cake I made for Easter, and asked me if I would be willing to make a custom cake for her daughter’s birthday. From there, it progressed into what you see here…
A love for all things sweet, sugary, sparkly and full of sprinkles!
