COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: Las Vegas Cupcake Bakeoff
I was born the oldest of nine children in rural Missouri. Being the oldest, I grew up in the kitchen with my mother and grandmother. Cooking, baking & laughing together…in my opinion it was the best training ever. My love for creating delicious dishes for others only blossomed as I grew older. While in high school I won several awards for cooking. Many times I cooked for the entire teaching staff.
Although in college I studied primary school education, I never lost my passion for baking and cooking. All my life I have enjoyed spoiling my loved ones with tasty treats. During the past five years, I have baked and decorated themed cupcakes in the evenings and weekends for customs orders from acquaintances to businesses. In 2012 and 2013 I competed in the Las Vegas Cupcake Bakeoff winning 1st place in 2013.
When I am not baking or cooking I love anything that gives me an adrenaline rush, like skydiving, bungee jumping, surfing, snow skiing, and scuba diving. When I need to relax I enjoy photography, hiking, and spending time with my boyfriend, Joshua. I’m the proud mother of two amazing kids, Jordan & Scotty. I am extremely competitive and I’m ready for this competition!
