Now that you know a little bit more about me, here are the answers to the questions I was asked:

1.) Why did you start your blog?

I started my blog so I could share everything I baked with the whole world.

2.) What is your favorite post that you’ve written? (Please provide a link.)

My favorite post I’ve written would probably be this one because it was one of my most favorite cakes I have made!

3.) What’s your favorite dessert?

I have many favorite desserts, but my most favorite would have to be a nice soft slice of red velvet cake with sweet cream cheese frosting.

4.) How do you take your coffee/tea?

I don’t usually drink coffee or tea, but when I drink coffee, I have it with a lot of milk and sugar. 🙂

5.) What’s your biggest dream?

My biggest dream is to become a pastry chef and hopefully write a cookbook.

6.) If money wasn’t a concern, where would you choose to live?

I would probably just stay in California, but I would travel to a lot of different places for vacation.

7.) What’s your favorite thing to cook or bake?

I really love to bake any dessert, including cakes, cookies, brownies, etc.

8.) Mountains or the ocean?

Ocean, but mountains come close. ^^

9.) What’s your favorite book?

My favorite book of course has to be a Harry Potter book, but I can’t choose which one!

10.) What is your go to snack?

I love to munch on anything salty as a snack (I save the sweets for dessert)

11.) What’s your go-to recipe on a weeknight?

I don’t really cook or bake much on a weeknight because of school, unless I’m baking for an event. When I do bake, I usually go for something simple like a classic vanilla cake.
