PAULA WANG - WANNABE BAKER & MAKER OF PRETTY (& DELICIOUS) THINGS
I'm a boxed-brownie-mix eater turned wannabe baker.
In 2017, I quit my mundane desk job to attend L'academie de Cuisine only to find out that the school would be closing two weeks before the start of my program. Without the technical background that I hoped to receive from attending pastry school, I took matters in to my own hands: bought myself cookbooks, started baking every day I could, and reached out to bakeries for stagés. I started p.made as a way to showcase the things I was learning, and to share my love for pretty desserts and sweets. It has given me the confidence to make family and friends (and strangers!) pretty little things to share at their celebrations. The p.made brand is now my daily reminder of the importance of resilience when it comes to following your dreams - making IT happen, regardless of the circumstance.
I reside in the DMV area with my husband and two dog babies, Riley and Mochi. Besides baking, in my free time, I love bike riding and watching anything mindless on Bravo.
