Brno is full of talented people, and some of them are not originally from the Czech Republic. We introduce the first in line – Mariana, baking amazing cakes and confections!
While most public events have been put on hold for a long time – there are no concerts, performances or exhibitions – the people who have art and creativity as part of their lives are still here. We decided to highlight these people through a series of articles and videos on our blog. The first one is Mariana, originally from Brazil: “Ever since I can remember, decorating, baking cakes & sweets has always been a constant in my life. It’s a part of Brazilian family tradition to get together to cook and bake sweets. Now, it is my hobby as well as a main source of income: as a housewife and a mother of four little ones, this job suits our family dynamics to perfection. I have time to take care of the little ones and in between, bake cakes and brigadeiros to sweeten other people’s lives. I’m astonished by how supportive the community in Brno is.
