As kids, we're often asked, What do you want to be when you grow up? Are you doing anything near to what you dreamed? Well, I can say I was pretty close! I always told people I wanted to be a candy maker; and guess what? That's exactly what happened! But in addition to making special-order candies, I also create amazing cakes and stuff ice cream between homemade, freshly baked cookies! But I didn't initially start out in the baking world.
When I went to Johnson and Wales for college, I enrolled in equine studies, hoping to own an equestrian center. I later switched to business management. But then, in my last year, I started taking classes at the local craft store and making icing with my little hand mixer in my dorm. I would buy cupcakes and take off the icing so I could experiment and practice. And that’s when I fell in love with baking; from there, my childhood dream began to manifest into my life's work.
In the summer of 2016 I was offered a great opportunity to open a pop-up ice cream shop. In order to incorporate my passion for baking into ice cream, I upped the ante with homemade cookies, which is how the fresh-baked-cookie ice cream sandwich came about. So, stop by the store to grab a quick treat and and say hello.
See you Soon!
