My blog and YouTube channel is about anything and everything related to do-it-yourself baking from scratch, and decorating cakes and cupcakes. We also balance it out with some hiking trips mixed in for a well rounded lifestyle! I try to respond to as many questions and comments as I can, so leave me one, and I’ll get back to you!
What kind of dog is Ruby?
She is a Pug/Brussel Griffon cross and has the sweetest temperament. Look for her in our Backpacking videos.
What do you do with everything that you make?
We give it away to friends, family and coworkers.
What camera do you film with?
We actually shoot with two cameras. A Nikon D750, in our newer videos, and a Nikon D7000 in the older ones, as well as a secondary shot Cannon XA20.
What’s been your biggest accomplishment in life thus far?
That is a hard question to answer (ask yourself what you would say?), but I would have to say that I am very proud of myself for getting a teaching job at a great school, moving to London (when I was too young to know better) and living there for a year. It was the highlight of my life so far-an amazing experience all around Europe and the Middle East.
What kind of mixer do you have?
A KitchenAid Stand Mixer Classic, in black, the KA Artisan in Cinnamon and the KA Pro Series 5 in silver.
What’s your favorite comfort food?
Anything loaded with carbs. I’m such a carb girl, it’s gross. Pasta, bread, buns, naan. I could eat bowl after bowl of pasta (especially fresh) until I would be so fat, I wouldn’t be able to move. I don’t really like vegetables, though I do get the odd craving for salads once and a while (it has to be full of cheese, protein and nuts though).
If you weren’t a teacher, what would you be doing?
A full time YouTuber!
How did you decide what grade to teach? Did you ever consider grades other than Kindergarten?
When I started out teaching, I would have taken ANY grade that I was offered, but when I finally settled into my continuing contract, it was in Kindergarten, and I love it there. I have taught a grade one, a one/two, a two/three and subbed at many other levels, but Kindergarten is where the fun is at!
What is your favourite cake?
Do I have to only pick one? My favourite is Angel Food. I LOVE the crusty edges the most. Other than Angel Food, I don’t really like cake. GASP! I like the icing. The icing is where it’s at . . . especially peanut butter icing.
What’s your favourite movie?
When I was a kid, my favourite movie was Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, as a teenager it was Clueless, in my 20′s it was Fight Club, now, I would have to say it is Julie and Julia!
What’s your favorite thing to do to “wind down” before bed?
I like to catch up on my blog reading, pin like a mad woman or read a good book.
