When and how did you become interested in baking, and how long have you been baking? My mum introduced me to baking from a very early age. I was always "helping" her (i.e. eating cookie dough) but started baking by myself when I was about 10. It's a meld of my two favorite things—science and art—so the hobby just kind of stuck with me. You get to be creative while also having control over measurable variables.
