WHAT: Scooter Cakes is my passion. I love buttercream, cupcakes, and fun designs!
WHO: I am a sweet obsessed, chocolate loving, trend following, dessert maniac. I started my journey on the road to SWEET HEAVEN long ago when I would run around the house with cake and whipped cream hiding from my mom. Butter, whipped cream, sugar : these are my partners in crime. Eggs, flour, vanilla : these are my accomplices to bigger and better things.
TRAINING: I have a degree in Pastry Arts from the Culinary Institute of the Pacific in Hawaii. I also have 3 1/2 years of experience in large scale production kitchens making the wonders of the dessert world. Cakes, pies, tarts, mousses, ice creams, breads, and smiles. That is my specialty!
ABOUT ME: My first real hint at a pastry career began in 2003 when I lived in Paris for a semester. I was young and broke and lived on museums and desserts. Day to day and month to month, I ate pastries and sweets until I was out of money and room to put it.
I lived in Hawaii for 9 years and it has influenced my flavor and color palette immensely. Bright blues and pinks, pale sea inspired creamy dips and pops of ocean splendor. I love passion fruit (lilikoi), mango, papaya and tropical garnishes. If I could create the perfect world, it would have an abundance of these things as well as dark chocolate for breakfast. lunch. and dinner.
