How have you gone from a 13 year career in banking to running your own business and studying at Le Cordon Bleu London?
Well I went from school, straight to banking for a Dutch and then a Japanese company, but in the background I always had an interest in baking. For 4-5 years I would bake in my spare time, and gradually friends and family would make requests for me to bake them celebration cakes. I soon realized that I could make some money from my favorite pastime and possibly a business!
So on a Friday night I would come home from work at 7pm, put the oven on and start baking. On a Saturday morning I would sell my cakes at local farmers markets and from my website Yumptious, until one day I took a sabbatical from work and came to Le Cordon Bleu to learn the traditional techniques.
