A relative who was doing some genealogical research told me that my great great grandparents ran a cake business out of their home. I think this is the coolest thing ever!

I am purely a hobbyist, but clearly, caking is genetic for me!!

how cool! I recently found out my Great Grandmother had a baking business out of her home during the war.

It definatly makes you feel closer to them!

I made the same discovery in doing my family tree of my great grandfather and even got pictures of his cakes from family weddings. I definitely felt this was a reason to why I was so connected to baking. Finding out more information is always fun! That's really fun to know!
