SUMMARY

After 10 years pursuing my goal to be one of the best Pastry Chefs in the United States, I gave in to
family pressures to remain in the St. Louis area, where Pastry Chef jobs were few and far between.  
Now that I have eliminated those influences, I am ready to get back “on track” with my culinary
career, once again, pursuing “my goals” and my aspirations which I’ve had since I decorated my first
cake at age 8.  I would welcome the challenge of proving that I've still got what it takes to be “The
Best”!
The Cake below is Jefferson’s Monticello Home, all buttercream and royal frosting, not rolled fondant.
It served 400 people and was made for a Jr. College near St. Louis, MO in 1993.
