I love eating. I love trying new foods especially when it comes to desserts. I don't know if I love baking as much as I love eating though...so I'm unsure if I should go into pastry making. I'm unsure because I've never tried baking 8hrs straight with no breaks and I've only baked a handful of times in my life. I've baked 3 bundt cakes (which were all a big success in my family), some cookies(which ended up turning into muffin tops....), and cinnamon bun rolls(success but definitely has room for improvement). It seems that most successful pastry chefs have been baking since young. I'm 21 and don't have much fundamentals in baking....am I hopeless? Are there any pastry chefs that started baking late in life?
