BAKERY

Having been schooled in baking and patisserie, employed and self-employed as a baker, I'll admit my patience is tested time and time again in this area of science of exact measurements and methods.  But make no mistake... that first decadent bite is worth every sweat and tear.  (Yup, I've shed a frustrated tear over an unsatisfactory decorated cake... only to be torn down, rebaked and reconstructed.)
