Happily Ever After…

I have officially become a CERTIFIED PASTRY CHEF or so to say. I can’t believe it even though my certificate is right in my hands and proves that I have made it through and now can officially ramble in a kitchen. I still remember the November morning when I wrote to one of my best … Continue reading

“I love baking. I love biking. I love Budapest.” So, here is my showcase cake I imagined for the exam. It turned out cute and reflects me in every bit.
