I cannot believe that I only have 4 days of school left! This past week has been insane, but I have survived. The business project I have been working on is finally over. I think my presentation went pretty great, and I gave out these cute little gift bags with samples of some of my products. I gave away sea salt chocolate chip cookies (the best!), dirt cake, topo chico, and a pretty good recipe for some spicy chocolate muffins.

Cute little jars of dirt cake

After 2 interviews, a trial day, and a math test at Trulucks this past week they finally offered me the job as the pastry chef at the north location! I am pretty excited although this is not the job I ever imagined getting after school.... I just never imagined myself working in a fancy restaurant. I love the small bakery atmosphere, so I am going to try to keep working at Sweet Tempered once a week. They make the most delicious and creative desserts; it has been such a great learning experience working there.

Other amazing news..... My chef selected me to receive a scholarship to take a class by Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes! The class is on Monday, and I am pretty nervous, but really excited to be able to take her class.

Today I finished a cake for a baby shower my sister is hosting. I am not too thrilled with the cake, so I am not going to show it to you. That's about all I have to give as updates. Until later, happy baking!

I just finshed my second piece of the yummmmmy cake!!!!! I love it and I will continue to eat it until it is all gone. I'm so sad that you didn't put a picture up because it got so many comments at the shower, everybody loved it! Have a wonderful time tomorrow looking at cakes and have fun on Monday!!!! Thanks again for making the cake!!
