I grew up baking cakes, cookies, and pies along side my grandmother in her southern Minnesota farmhouse. Mornings were spent tending to her large garden and afternoons were spent sneaking licks of batter from whatever she was baking.
Most girls dream about their wedding day beause of the dress, I dreamed about my wedding day because of the cake I wanted to make. My very first wedding cake was the one for my husband and myself. I loved the experience and since then have continued baking for family and friends.
I am self taught and have not had any formal training.
Why Gray Duck? It's a game that brings me back to the innocence of childhood, to baking with my Grandma, to when calories didn't count, and gives a nod to my Minnesota roots.
When I am not busy baking, I enjoy my full time job as a physical therapist. I have a wonderfully supportive husband and two handsome little boys. I like to balance my passion for baking with a love for running.
