Nice meeting with you! My name is Margie and I love to cook, bake and eat!
I found my passion in baking when my son turns 2. I made him an 8" Superman theme cake on his birthday, it was a hit! Kids and parents love it, begging for more. Since then I realized, I enjoyed doing it, I said to myself, I can do this all day! Then I offered baked decorated cakes to my friends and to Mom's at my son's school. I'm so trilled when I come up with beautiful cake designs and tasted delicious.
I've watched cake tutorials, learn techniques, self-studied the many ways of decorating cake; the use of fondant and a perfect smooth texture of frosting to cover a cake. My imagination gone wild! Later on, every cake I make is a work of art. My husband said, you're now the Queen of Baking!
There's nothing more satisfying when you see people enjoying the cake and singing praises about it.
In February 2016, I put my mind into it. I developed a business plan, created a website and purchased the domain name. I implemented every details of WBS. Everyday is a learning process and I am excited to create a lifetime memories with you.
I was born in Central Visayas region of the Philippines, Dumaguete City. My late Dad is known for as a great cook, during Fiesta in the nearby City, it is a customary that my Dad get invited to cook for them. At young age (7), my Dad would take me with him, I seat on the side watching him cook food to feed many strangers and passers by. Fiesta is part of Filipino tradition, that we believe sharing a meal with strangers strengthens us all.
I graduated in Master's Degree major in Hospitality Management at Philippine Women's University. Growing up, I always wanted to finish school. My parents could not afford to pay for my college tuition. I served tables while finishing my degree. I was lucky enough to work with an amazing boss at The Wine Press Restaurant in Manila, Philippines whom my very talented and successful mentor, Bradley Mitton, taught me a lot in the Hospitality and Culinary industry.
During that time, I've traveled for work and pleasure to Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Virginia USA and Doha, Qatar UAE. I spend more time in Singapore for an on the job training in Hospitality Management at Marriott Hotel, Orchard, Singapore. I am very thankful for that experience, I was able to understand the true meaning of diversity.
As I finished my Degree in Hospitality, I become an instructor at De Lasalle Dasmarinas Cavite for over 3 years. Learning and sharing knowledge is an accomplishment. Then in 2006, I decided to moved to United States. I met my loving husband Jeremy in 2007 who makes my life more complete with our most precious son Matthew who is very smart, so curious about life.
