Pastry Chef & Recipe Developer

Zara Made It

Although I’m a licensed attorney, I practice the culinary arts at the moment. Growing up I wanted to be everything, and as an adult I realize not much has changed — I still want to be everything! In my current business, I create custom cakes for clients, teach several public and private cooking and baking classes and develop recipes for blogs, websites and magazines. I’m always looking to learn more and expand into different fields because I truly believe life is too short.
