Birthday Cake - Finished

Final product, y'all!

Anything worth having or doing possess one common element: time.

Regardless of race, religion, sex, gender, wealth, talent... no one person has more than, or less than, 24 hours allotted per day.

Celebrating my three year anniversary move to Dallas, I have naturally adapted to the infamous Texan motto... "go big or go home."


Most chefs focus on one culinary discipline: cuisine or pastry.

I do both.


Because to me, there is no greater gift that one can give than time... or something made by hand.

Creating flavors takes time, love, experience and absolute joy. For instance, caramelizing onions generally takes about 45 minutes in order to break down, create natural flavors and properly cook... a simple element, yet essential when necessary. A roast can take days when cooking low and slow.

Making and rolling cake fondant, baking cakes, decorating... time, time, time.

Whatever you talent, learn to share your gift with others... cooking, music, dance, flying, encouragement, art, business, advice, hospitality... even a simple smile can make all of the difference for one individual.

Each day is a gift. How bad do you want it?

Love y'all dearly!!
