After taking a few pastry and baking classes at the local college, she started working at The Sweet Life Patisserie and fell in love with the art of the wedding cake. She picked up the style of incorporating fresh flowers onto all of her cakes and continues to do so as her signature touch. “I feel it adds a fresh, organic feel to the cake.
