Emma Dooley

  • Evening pastry chef at Cho-o-Pain
    in Jersey City
  • Wants to specialize in frozen
    desserts and ice creams
  • Chose HCCC because it was one of the top
    culinary schools in NJ and was very affordable.
  • Her assigned cake theme was sweet 16.
    "The reason why I picked
    butterflies and flowers and more
    of a sophisticated
    color palette is because
    when a girl turns 16
    she is blossoming and
    transforming into adulthood."
