How to Answer

How did you become so passionate about baking? You can share a story from your childhood, thinking back on those summer days when you spent hours in the kitchen experimenting with baking chocolate cookies for the first time. Here's another example: "I have always enjoyed baking because I love to share my goodies with friends and family. It makes me happy to make other people happy by simply doing something that I love. The science and the creative side to making really motivates me and keeps me going, even in a fast-paced environment."
