My name is Nicki (Lee). I am so glad that you’re here! Hopefully you stopped by because you love to laugh, you want to live life to the fullest, and above all else, you love to eat (and probably throw in a few drinks here and there, too). I say this because that is exactly where I am in life. During the past few years, I’d struggled with the typical quarter-life crisis of figuring out my “passion” (and by the way, I think you can have more than one). I had a great job, wonderful friends, and an amazing family, but couldn’t figure out what it is that I loved to do, what made me happiest, and how to make it my career. So after hundreds (literally) of career tests, far too many rented library books, and several failed attempts at new hobbies, I reassessed: what did I used to love? Ever since I was little, I dreamed of being an entertainer. I loved being creative, and found such satisfaction out of making people laugh; your child-self really says a lot about what’s true to your heart, and I, no doubt, am forever a child at heart. In addition to that, baking was always a stress-relieving, family-gathering activity that always played a big role in my life. So to combine the two? Nicki Lee Bakes. Making YouTube videos of my baking creations is my favorite thing to do, with the actual consumption of the baked goods at a close second. You can see some of those geeky videos here on my channel page. Needless to say, I love where I am right now, and I want to share all of it with you! I love getting your feedback, and I love getting you just as involved in the fun as I am.
So if you like to laugh, you’re a little bit of a dork like me (this is not a necessity), and you’re not one to skimp out on the dessert, you’re in the right place. I hope you have fun here at Nicki Lee Bakes, and hopefully you’re a little more inspired to do what you LOVE to do. I promise you won’t regret it.
