Here are five of the most stunning desserts in the city: Continue reading Too Good to Eat

Yuka Takeda : First of all, my major course of study in college was biology; however, I found out that I like making things for my friends (especially pastries) and seeing their smiles. Then I thought about becoming pastry chef. I always like how pastries look and when I changed my major to fine arts, I always used pastry images for anything, such as drawings, collage, paintings, etc.
