About Me

Kelsea Pacson

Hello!

My name is Kelsea, a self taught baker who has a passion towards pastries. I am currently enrolled in the Baking and Pastry Program at Humber College to expand my knowledge in pastries in hopes to bring more to this business! I've had the pleasure to study abroad in Europe to experience and learn more on the history of pastries.

Aside from baking in the kitchen, my main hobbies are weight lifting and trying new foods.
