Meet the Bakers/Rencontrer les Patissiers: Sophie
Sophie is 10-1/2 years old. She will be competing as one of our bakers under 16. Two of her favorite things in life are eating and baking. She's also passionate about animals and would like to be a veterinarian (or chef or hairdresser) one day. When she thinks about the earthquake in Haiti, she worries about all the animals.
Here she's baking up a batch of cupcakes to bring to Cupcake Camp tomorrow. No help from mom this time. When she realized that one stick of butter in France is twice the amount of one stick of butter called for in the US recipe she used, she worried that she'd have to start over. But the result is a winner and she's named them: Orange-Vanilla Butter Bombs. Isn't she a cutie? Looking forward to trying those Orange-Vanilla Butter Bombs!
