It works," says Corina, "I've rarely ever applied to work with organizations that were looking to fill a job. I've always landed roles where I wanted to develop my skills, and where they saw a fit."

of cake. Actually her cakes are better described as pieces
of sculpture in of Art + Design, where she specialized in
graphic design. But her skills with butter cream icing were
acquired at home. Ludwig started making cakes as a girl
and later made cakes for friends and coworkers before deciding
to make it a business called Passion For Cakes.”

and handbags (like the replica leather bag, above) and an
iconic cosmetic jar with edible glitter. –Shelora Sheldan”
