|Meet Sean Hogan|
With all of his experience, Sean has made many different types of dessert, ironically he doesn't even really like to eat dessert! If he had to pick a favorite to make, however, it would be mousse. When making mousse Sean says, "you have to be careful with the temperature. You don't want it too hot or too cold. It will spilt and deflate if it is too hot, and if it is too cold it'll bind." When it comes to cakes his favorite flavor combination is chocolate cake with raspberry filling- yummy!

With reality television shows, although it is bringing a lot of attention to the industry, it is also bringing many misconceptions as well. Sean thinks, "One of the biggest misconceptions is that this industry is easy. Its not! Long hours on your feet, heavy lifting, and it is time consuming detailed work." He says don't be afraid to try and make things at home, but in doubt "use reputable bakers- from testimonials from people you know, photos of past work, word of mouth, or sampling some of their desserts before you order a large order for a special event."
