I am a professional baker who has been teaching confectionery arts on Outschool for three years now.  I have loved baking since I was the age of most of my learners!  In fact, in class you’ll see my beloved KitchenAid stand mixer that was my 12th birthday present and is still a total workhorse to this day!  

When my kids were young I decided to take some cake decorating classes to ensure my kids always had show-stopping cakes at their parties.  Over time it blossomed into a career beyond my wildest dreams.  I operated a bakery for a number of years and eventually transitioned into this ultra-fulfilling role as a confectionery arts teacher.  

I love seeing the creativity, patience, and precision that goes into each learner’s work.  However, I also love seeing them manage a project from start to finish.  I am proud of them when they are faced with a setback in their project and they calmly make a plan B.  I enjoy watching them interact in the virtual classroom as they learn from one another and provide feedback/compliments on the work of their peers.  There is so much more to cake decorating than just cake.  (((Although as an invested parent it is your responsibility to partake in eating their delicious homework – haha!)))  These learners grow in so many ways throughout class and it is a blessing to participate in that process.  

I am so excited for this opportunity to create with your learner.
