Nice meeting with you! My name is Margie and I love to cook, bake and eat!
I started baking when my son was turning 2. I made him an 8" round superman theme cake on his birthday, which it turned out to be so good. The kids and parents enjoyed it. I realized I could bake cakes and create designs everyday! Since then I started to offer baking cakes to my friends and Mom's at my son's school. It excites me when I learn new in baking techniques. I've watched cake tutorials, researched and studied on my own the many different way of cake decorating and using fondant. It's amazing!
Finally, every cake I make started to look better and better, its 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 created a website and purchased the domain name. Everyday is an experience and I am excited to create memories with you.
I was born in Central Visayas region of the Philippines, Dumaguete City. My Dad is a great cook, he usually gets invited to Fiesta's any where in nearby city, sometimes he would take me with him when I was little. He'd cook their 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. My parents could not afford to pay for my college tuition, so I continue working; serving tables at night while finishing my degree during the day. 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.
I've traveled for work and pleasure to Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Virginia USA and Qatar UAE. However I spend more time in Singapore for an on the job training in Hospitality Management at Marriott Hotel, Orchard, Singapore. I very thankful for that experience, I was able to understand the true meaning of diversity.
As I finished my Masters 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 meaningful with our most precious son Matthew who is very smart, so curious about life.
