Grandma's Cheesecake Sandwiches: Baking Tips from Lisa Cotoggio

Hey there, fellow bakers-to-be! Ready to soak up some wisdom from Lisa Cotoggio, the brains (and heart) behind Grandma’s Cheesecake Sandwiches?

Lisa's got some solid advice for all you sweet-toothed dreamers out there. First things first: if you're not passionate about sweets, why bother, right? Whether it's whipping up pastries, cookies, or cakes, it's gotta be a labor of love, not just work.

Now, let's talk about how Lisa's journey started. It wasn't some grand plan from the get-go. Nah, it all began with a simple desire to recreate her grandma's mouthwatering recipes. So, she traded the nightlife scene for the pastry kitchen, following her heart's craving for sweetness.

Choosing what to serve wasn’t a walk in the park, though. Lisa had to blend her gut instincts with what the market wanted, cooking up a menu that'd have folks lining up around the block. Her secret sauce?

Pay attention to what your customers are craving and don't be afraid to mix things up. After all, the kitchen's your playground, right?

Now, dealing with suppliers and vendors is a people game. It's all about trust and keeping those communication lines wide open. Oh, and having good credit? That's like the icing on the cake. People want to work with folks they can rely on speaking both socially and financially.

And let's not forget the bumps in the road every baker faces. Lisa’s been there, done that. Even after facing a pandemic with everlasting changes,  she's got this unbeatable recipe for bouncing back: optimism, adaptability, and a deep love for baking. Turn those setbacks into opportunities and keep serving up joy to your customers.

Lisa’s story is a reminder that passion, creativity, and hard work can take you far in the baking industry.
