Food Job: Flower Girl

I asked a young student what she would like to do when she graduates.

With a heavy sigh she confessed all she likes to do is to make decorative flowers for cakes. “Who’s going to pay me to do that for eight hours a day?” she whispered.

She now has a high-paying job.

She works for a caterer whose venue is a botanical garden.

She creates decorative flowers for eight hours a day.

She matches the flowers on wedding cakes to the seasonal flowers in bridal bouquets.
