Fun facts about Yoly:

Best cook I know: My mother

Dish I make that others like most: My chicken tortilla casserole. It's not the prettiest, but it's so delicious.

My superpower: I am great at piping and decorating cakes. I have made five-tier wedding cakes — old-school with buttercream, not fondant.

Holiday baking traditions at my house: I always make Mexican wedding cookies, sugared pecans, fudge walnut brownies, Italian cream cake, no-bake peanut butter squares, and Key lime pie for Christmas Day. I also make spritz cookies for everyone.

My kitchen is: My stress reliever!

Favorite cuisine: Mexican. I was born and raised in Marina del Rey, California, but my mother was from Guadalajara, Mexico, and my father was an American citizen of Mexican and Filipino heritage.
