A yoga instructor by morning, attorney by day, and spin instructor by night, I bake whenever I can find the spare time. Fondly known among my friends as the "purveyor of diabetes," what started as a mere challenge to improve my baking skills, has actually turned into a tiny business -- "Intellibaker" -- a play on my last name. Aesthetics and taste are of equal importance in my baking. My goal is to create tiny masterpieces that are so visually pleasing that they lure people in. After taking that first bite, my victims...uh...er...I mean, the taster should think, "that is even yummier than it looks!"
