Baking is all about sharing smiles and creating memories. My passion for desserts started when I was a child. One of my fondest childhood memories was baking chocolate chip cookies and fudge with my father. Like all children, I looked up to my father. He is my hero and I always looked forward to our time together. We would get all the necessary ingredients, sit around the kitchen table laughing, making a mess, and patiently waiting for the oven to beep signaling that the delicious cookies were ready to eat. Till this day, I swear those were the best cookies and fudge I have ever tasted, and I realize that what was most special about those days wasn't the sweetness of the cookies and fudge, but the sweetness of the memories we created.
As the years flew by, I frequently reminisced about the days spent baking with my father. I had never felt happier and it became clear that my passion and purpose was to create delicious desserts others could enjoy while spending time with their favorite people. So, after researching culinary schools and consulting with various chefs, I made the decision to enroll in the French Culinary Institute in NYC. Three weeks later, my bags were packed and I was heading across country from my home town in Sacramento California to the Big Apple.
After completing the pastry program I continued to graduate from the cake program. I applied for an internship in Brooklyn, NY called Elegantly Iced. Where I learned so much more about the art of cakes. As much as I loved NYC, I missed the intimate feeling of my hometown. One month after moving back to Sacramento, I was blessed to learn that I would be expecting a healthy baby boy. I bake all of my desserts in my mother's kitchen with my son playing nearby stealing bites of leftover cake and frosting. I smile as I create beautiful desserts with exquisite detail because I know that these are the memories that my son will remember as he gets older.
For me, Sweet Desserts by Renee, is more than just creating delicious desserts to enjoy, it's about inspiring the world to create memories that last long after they devour my sweet treats.
