Interview with Candy Ramirez


As much as I love interviewing the “cake gods” of our industry, I also love featuring real readers of the blog and people who are truly making this whole cake thing work for them. Candy Ramirez has been in the cake industry for 7 years, and her story is, well, pretty amazing. Starting from incredibly difficult beginnings – mostly absent parents, becoming a Mom as a teenager, being the breadwinner for a multi-generational household – she’s lived through a hell of a lot.

This interview was inspiring, educational and totally surprising to me in that it feels like I found a kindred spirit. Enjoy!
