It is not easy being a decorateur. It is no secret that knowing what the judges would be looking for is very important in a culinary competition. Since 2010 I had been observant on the things that other competitors do. This is the importance of research and being innovative. If one would want to win, never stop updating, think out of the box ideas and be patient. Designs are all around us waiting to be used, explored and be as an inspiration.

On his way to conquer the saccharine life of baking and patisserie world. Not afraid to dream big 'cause I do believe that dreaming is free and should be done freely. I think, therefore, I am. Please don't hate(just a dreamer...sakay ka na lang :) ). Care to ride on the journey?? the fare is free! Tara! God bless! :)The Voyage so far! Photography blog :) Quoted!

Anonymous asked: Hi. I'm from ISCAHM too, batch 18 i'm taking up culinary for now.. I wanted to take up Pastry after ko matapos ito pero wala pa ako masyadong alam sa pastry, basic lang talaga. As in basic!! Mas okay bang pagkatapos ng culinary kunin ko na agad pastry? I wanted to ask more about yung diploma course ng pastry. I'd be glad if makita kita sa school! For more tips hihi. Wala kasi akong tumblr kaya Anon lang. :)) -rox
Hello Rox of batch 18! :) What I know about the curriculum of culinary diploma students is that they have pastry subjects din. Although basic lang, you’ll get to experience being inside the pastry kitchen pa rin. If I were on your situation, I’d wait for that to happen first and exp. the pastry courses, see if pastry is really my thing, and then decide about that. It’s really hard to give suggestion kasi lalo na malaking pera ang pwedeng ma-risk. I’d be happy to talk to you sa school, just approach me and I’ll tell you more if you want to. God bless schoolmate! :)
few days away from competition and we had just finalize the look of the whole cake. >.< Being fondant cake as I believe as my weakness, I don’t know if we can do it. Things are too much for me to handle. I’ve been away from here for so long as well. I hope all of this will be worth it, Wew….
