About Ivana

I’m Ivana, a 20-year-old blogger talking just about desserts. Anything dessert related is my life. I enjoy making them as well as eating them. I am exploring the world of desserts one cookie and tart at a time. Of course seeing as that I am quite the permanent resident of Boston, I will explore most of the Boston area, though when I am at home in Westchester county, desserts there will not stand a chance.
A little more about me:

I am a student at Boston University, where I am studying International Relations, though it’s not my dream job. What I really want to do is have my own pastry/café-type shop, selling desserts ranging from pastries and pies to cakes and cupcakes, along with a seating area to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea with your choice of pastry. Of course this is currently just a dream and in order to make it come true, I of course would have to find desserts that are good enough to be served/sold. So I want to explore other chefs’ renditions of certain desserts as well as what kinds of concoctions I can make.
But I digress. I like to dance, draw and hang out with one of my best friends who is quite the yummy treat lover herself, Joanne. Most of my dessert adventures will be with her so definitely be ready for quite the trip. Check out her about on the fourthoughtsforfood link at the top and check out her insights and discoveries in the fourthoughtsforfood category.
