Thank you for checking out my weblog! I am Patrice, owner and chef at PATRICE'S CAKES AND CONFECTIONS. Several years ago I retired as a state auditor, having worked as well in the mortgage lending business. In addition, I served this great nation as a Naval Supply officer, long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away. So now, I bake and create! Look for more info as I carve out time to share stories, food goofs and successes along the way, and, perhaps, divulge the occasional recipe or baking tip. Thanks for checking in!
