Meet Karla… an HDG All Star!!!
Passion for design goes beyond interior design. Apart from being a key member of the HDG design team, Karla has a passion for baking that rises to any occasion.
Let’s do a little Q & A:
+ How did you become interested in baking, Karla?
“I have been interested in baking since I was a child. My mother baked for us all the time, and I loved watching her turn raw materials into something beautiful. As a college student, I became immersed in the world of baking when working part-time at a bakery. There I learned the magic and art of pastries. Five years ago, I found myself suddenly jobless. A friend suggested that I take orders to bake cakes while looking for another full-time job. Slowly, by word of mouth, my clientele grew to what it is today”.
+ How do you find time while working a full-time job?
“When you love what you do it doesn’t feel like work. Most days, I go straight to the kitchen for 3-4 hours. People tend to underestimate the number of hours that go into making a cake, especially when it involves making fondant figurines. On an average, it takes me about 8-12 hours per cake. It is a labor of love and I am inspired by each creation”.
The HDG team is delighted to feature Karla as one of our All Stars!!!
