After she spent more than a decade testing and writing recipes, a visit to Paris was all it took for Kristen Erich to know that she wanted to open a bakery one day. In July 2011, Kristen lost her job and decided it was time to stop being afraid and start making her dream a reality. Kristen started Bliss Pastry in DeLand, Florida, where she now creates custom-designed wedding and celebration cakes. Her designs can be found in magazines such as American Cake Decorating, Cake Central and Cake Masters, as well as in numerous trend-spotting blogs.
