Baking is science, but cooking is like sex.
What worked one time might not get you where you want it the next time. You use your experience to adjust, tweak & finesse. When you get it right you just know.
Sometimes you need things to be hot, hard and fast, sometimes you need it gentle and slow and easy.
It takes a lot of passion, and dedication, and patience.
When people like what you do, they tend to moan, and say "oh my god" a lot, and their eyes roll back in their heads. (that’s the best!)
