Wichita Wednesday (Dec 2nd) – Matthew Boatwright

Tell us a little about yourself. When and why did you start baking?

I’ve been decorating and baking for what feels like forever! I found my passion through chance, my friend asked me to make her kiddo a cake and it just grew from there!

What is one baking item you cannot live without?

Sweetex Gold! The high ratio shortening is EVERYTHING! When Dee introduced me to it my whole world changed! It made my buttercream stand up and made smoothing as decorating soooo much easier!

If you could bake/decorate with anyone famous who would it be?

JJR! Joshua John Russell is an amazing decorator, his recipes are amazing as well as his work! I’ve followed him ever since I found “Man About Cake” his YouTube show!

Do you have a local baking business, or do you just bake/decorate for fun?

I do have my little side hustle, I would like to say that it’s all fun but it’s an amazing job as well!! My Facebook page is “The Standard Bakery” and my Instagram handle is @thestandardbakeryict!
