I am a self taught professional baker. I got the "genes" from my Nana and the Inspiration from my swedish MIL. I started a home-based baking business. I got my home kitchen state approved, and now bake for the cafe's in town. I bake between 300-400 pieces on an average week (a piece being one of a dozen, etc.). In the summer and spring it's busier. I look ahead to having a large kitchen built in our basement and/or an outbuilding. For now though, i am able to make enough and still be able to manage our family/house needs. I bake everything from scones, muffins, brownies, cookies and gourmet treats.
