Q&A with Cairocats

Anna1255 asked:
Most pastry chefs, skilled chefs etc., are Men!!!. Surely they had to start somewhere and be shown by someone, not sure why you take offence is because the word women is suggested. I take a class at the moment and three men are also taking the class, they are not offended because there are more women, actually they quite like the attention and all the tips they receive. Try it first before assuming.....no offence meant just pointing out a few facts.
Cairocats answered:

... And now onto your cake and away from the politics. I think this is stunning. Having enrolled on the class and watched it several times, i love how you have adapted Marina's ideas and made them your own. Great work. I would be delighted to havevthis as my cake. Happy birthday... Just a shame you can't eat it!
Cairocats answered:
