Thank you for checking out my blog! I am Patrice, owner and chef at PATRICE'S CAKES AND CONFECTIONS. After a few career changes from Naval Officer to a state auditor, I decided to attend culinary school and open a baking business. The "About" section provides a bit more insight about how I started. I hope you will enjoy the occasional blog post, take a peek at my handiwork and, perhaps, order some caramels. Thanks for checking in!
