About the teacher:
Haley Shuman was born and raised in Rochester, and pastry is all she have ever done. She started learning about pastry at 15 when she interned at a small bakery in her hometown in Webster where she learned the fundamental of cake decorating and cookies. From there she knew that is what she wanted to do so she went to Penn State Williamsport for baking and pastry arts and graduated in 2012. After college Haley was the assistant pastry chef at the Riverside convention center which she learned so much in high end pastry. After a few years she moved on to managing the bakery at Hegedorn's Market in Webster where she learned volume baking and management. Caramel Bakery and Bar came to her in the form of a project in college as a late night bakery with cocktails!
