“[I’m passionate about] baking. My favorite thing that I ever made was this chocolate cake that I baked for Christmas this one year. It was dark chocolate and then a ganache and then crushed pomegranate seeds and crushed coffee beans. I brought it to me and my friends’ Christmas dinner thing that we do, and three of us ate half of a double layer chocolate cake in three hours. It was really nice. First of all, it was delicious — that was a good cake — and then it was really fulfilling to be able to do that for my good friends.”
