Pink Cake Boxer of the Month!
I do love ALL of my Pink Cake Box family…but in April I started Pink Cake Boxer of the Month (read employee of the month with a twist ). I am a little delayed in putting up posts about the past three month’s winners – but I would like to now take this opportunity to spotlight the first…(stay tuned for May and June’s profiles!)
April 2008 Pink Cake Boxer of the Month
Tara Johnson ….Baker at Law
You might wonder why Tara Johnson is Baker at Law…well see she was a lawyer in her previous life…clever, huh?
I met Tara while I was still working out of my mother’s house. She emailed me saying how she was thinking of embarking on the pastry arts adventure. We met and chatted and off she went to ICE in NYC. During her time there, she’d email me pictures of her pastries, and notes of how she loved what she was learning. Months later she emailed again…asking if she could do her externship with Pink Cake Box. Luckily we moved into the store just in the nick of time!
In July 2007 ,Tara began at Pink Cake Box as an intern. From the very beginning Tara was extremely diligent and hard working. Her math skills were obvious as she was a whiz at multiplying recipes, altering formulas and baking to perfection! Tara became our baker extrodinaire, developing new recipes and perfecting the ones that we were already using.
Now a year later, Tara has been promoted to Manager and is responsible for the baking and production of Pink Cake Box. She is a wonderful teacher and is highly respected by all of her co-workers. Tara was chosen as Pink Cake Boxer of the month because she is a great team player. She will come in early or on her days off to help out if needed, and she is always thinking about the betterment of the business. Tara truly cares about her job and Pink Cake Box.
She is a valued asset and I am so happy that she is a part of our family. Thank you Tara!!!
