Hello there! I’m Drew and welcome to my blog.
I will be sharing all my delectable creations showcasing how baking shouldn’t be feared. After all, it’s just sugar! Though it wasn’t always so familiar to me.
Originally from San Antonio, Texas, I attended the University of Texas at Dallas where I studied both finance and business administration. It wasn’t until my last year in college when I started to appreciate and explore the vast world of baking and sugar artistry. Encouraged by my grandmother who is an avid baker herself, I researched, experimented, and even started traveling across the country to compete at cake shows to further this hobby of mine. Soon enough I graduated with top honors and entered the world of finance.
For three years I worked at the largest financial institution in the state of Texas. Even with my full-time job, I yearned to continue this creative passion of mine. Thus, I continued traveling and furthering my knowledge on the subject. I was fortunate enough to have cakes published in magazines, blogs, win awards for my designs, and even work some amazing cake experts. Until one day, I finally made the tough decision to leave my position at my company.
I moved to Chicago to start anew, beginning my journey helping others see the joy of baking. Please join me on crazy adventures, where I teach how simple it is to make meaningful sweets to share with family and friends.
