When Ms. Erika Simmons was just fourteen, she found her love for baking when the holiday season rolled around. For her family’s Thanksgiving dinners, Simmons’ mom put her in charge of dessert, and so it became a tradition that they still carry out today. Simmons shared with Lasso Online that her desserts are a way to bring her family together on Thanksgiving which is special to her.
Simmons says that every year she makes a sweet potato pie, which is one of the more challenging desserts to make because it’s not about the measuring, it’s about the taste. She’s finally gotten that special taste down, but it took a while to master that skill and lots of time in the kitchen learning from her mom.
If you’ve ever been lucky enough to have Simmons as a teacher, then you would know that she’s a very generous person and rewards her students with candy. She says perhaps she’ll bring in some of her baked goods to get feedback from her students.
Though she doesn’t spend too much time devoted to baking, it certainly does appear that way. When Simmons moved to the area, she found a cake decorating class and signed up.
“This is only for my pleasure and it’s just a hobby. It’s just about increasing my personal skills, and I wouldn’t go into this professionally,” Simmons said about her hobby.
Though she wouldn’t take this on as a part time job, with desserts looking that good, she definitely could.Simmons says that it’s a win-win situation because she likes to bring others enjoyment through her baking.
