About the Author
My name is Pascal Simon, I grew up in Munich, Germany, and left my home when I was 18 years old to travel the world. I arrived in Austin, Texas in 1999 after visiting Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, New Caledonia, and Asia.
I live with my two boys, my cat, 13 fish and eight chickens.
I have loved baking since I was a young girl, when I would bake cakes and leave them on the counter to be devoured by my friends and family.
My grandmother was a master baker and my grandfather worked for Dr. Oetker, a global baking ingredient company in Germany. My aunt was a professional cake decorator, so it just seemed logical that I would follow their lead.
I earned my degree as a pastry chef at the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in 2012 and soon after started Bake Austin, which turned quickly from a small home run bakery to a baking school for kids and adults.
Hundreds of kids have come through my door and created pies cookies, cakes, cupcakes, breads macarons, and pâte a choux from scratch.
