Tell us 1 - 3 sentences about this work.: "Pretend I'm an adult, all right? They come to my shop and I make them treats."
From mom- This is an ongoing participatory event. Lulu loves to set up shop and makes us treats and meals. Like being at a chef's table you get a sampling of all her best stuff which she enjoys describing, but you also get candid conversation and sound advice--or you may get scolded for interrupting her process. ...
"Does it look like I am done preparing your food yet? You can talk to me more when I'm done. Now- the cookies I make are hot so be careful. I don't want you to burn yourself, alright?"
For the exhibition, chef lulu would be happy to make a plate of special treats "for people to enjoy," set up shop to make treats for visitors or share photos of herself working in The Candy Bakery.
