When she was about 12 years old, Bernadine Baptiste began watching Food Network shows with her older sister and became fascinated with the process of mixing together ingredients to make a delicious dish. She started experimenting with baking different recipes and fell in love with baking, decorating and making beautiful edible creations. Now, the 18-year-old Dawson County High School alum has expanded this passion into her own small business and has been working hard to bring her cakes, cupcakes and other baked goods to the community.
