What’s the best part of your day?
Handing over a cake on a special occasion. Each cake is for a celebration of life. I’ve been especially honoured to cater for Desmond Tutu and Oprah Winfrey.
And the worst?
Besides getting out of bed at the crack of dawn? I’m supposed to close the shop at 4pm, but customers are still walking in at 4.45pm. By then I’m exhausted, because I start at eight in the morning.
