Don't Forget Cake
A Message from Warren Brown:
I opened my first bakery, CakeLove, in 2002 because I've always enjoyed sharing my love for food. It started as early as grade school when I discovered frying hot dogs split down the middle and seared with gobs of butter. I cooked for my family off and on throughout high school, mostly burritos and refried beans. Then it was me with the Thanksgiving turkey and gravy. I cooked every now and again for my roommates in college. I even created a study group called Gastronomy and the Law when I was in law school. Operating a bakery is just a natural extension of what I've been doing my entire life: bringing people together through food. Our latest version of cake jars--Don't Forget Cake--is what we're presenting now and the flavors are better than ever!
After more than a decade of being a food entrepreneur, do you still love it?
I do! Don't get me wrong -- it requires 110% of my time and effort (just ask my wife!) but I'm still into it. As for baking, I love it now more than ever. There are new flavors, new frontiers, new opportunities, and more challenges. I love that I'm constantly learning and still refining my craft. I have to be creative when I'm developing new flavors or new products. That's never easy, and that's what keeps it interesting. I love asking questions and losing myself in the science of baking. I know it's nerdy but that's how I have "fun" at 4 o'clock in the morning while experimenting in the kitchen.
