Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Doreen Johnson. I am originally from New Mexico and have lived in Wichita for 4 years. I am a dispatcher for the City of Augusta.
When and why did you start baking/decorating?
My baking cakes started as a class, then something to calm my stress. Now, I normally just do it for the police officers and firefighters I work with daily.
If you could bake with anyone famous who would it be?
Do you have a local baking business or do you just bake for fun?
I just bake for fun! The police officers and firefighters often ask for a cake so I make it for them! Most people like my strawberry, others prefer my carrot cake. I’ve only made one decorated cake and that was for an officer who left. Once in a while, I bake for someone else.
