They must be famous enough to have a citable source online. But would be willing to answer a couple of questions from me. I know there are plenty on here and was hoping one would volunteer. It is a very short paper..

 

I would like to know what started them baking. Describe their rise to the top and when did they know the "made it". And what their greatest accomplishment has been. Any stars they have done work for, awards won, where they have been published.

 

Nothing real intense...just short answers. Everyone else is going to do theirs of Duff, Buddy and other TV celebrities. I want to do mine on a real baker. One that does their own work and has not become commercialized. It does not have to be a Sylvia Weinstock or a Ron Ben Israel.

 

If anyone wants to email me their story and I can find article or bios published on the web I would really appreciate it. Thank you and Happy Caking!

Check out Ciril Hirtz... he teaches or did teach at Johnson & Wales and has appeared and taught all over.  He has DVD's on many baking techniques... The man is a genius!! had the pleasure to attend 3 different seminars and learned so much... best advice he gave was about being consistent with your product.  He did his training in Switzerland I believe.

I want to thank everyone for their input. Everyone is doing something on National Celebrities. I want you all to know that you are all celebrities to me. I think it is a much greater accomplishment to get your name well known without ever having your own reality series. If your fame comes based on your work alone, that makes you a role model to me!

 

I have had several bakers from here give me short bios to do this project. Have I ever said how much I love CC? You all are the most giving helpful people....sometimes the message doesn't come wrapped in potpourribut it is always for the benefit of others.

 

I have all of the info that I need at this time and have narrowed itdown to 2 bakers. Would the rest of society consider them "famous"? Probably not. But in the right circles they are...famous and admired.

 

Thank you to everyone who has participated.

I'm so glad you got some volunteers. I would have, but no one would be interested in me and my shaped pan obsession, err, collection! Home baker only, will never make the news.
