Meet Kyla!

This is the first post in a series where we get meet and greet the interns of The Sugar Suite. We have so many talented people that walk through our doors, and we want to tell the world all about them!

Kyla Jicha came to us from the Valencia Pastry Program (post UCF grad). Her bright smile and organizational skills have changed us forever! Never had we met someone that was 15 minutes early every single day for 6 weeks, impressive! She is a stunning perfectionist which is a serious compliment around here. She also has a passion for social media that created an exciting wave of interest in our bakery- making "Lets tweet this" a regular phrase! We wish Kyla all the best in her endeavors and asked her a few questions so everyone could know and love her like we do!

1.) What are three words you would use to describe yourself?



Rule-follower (does that count as one word?)

2.) What are you most passionate about?

My Jesus, my favorite people who I am so super lucky to call my family and the most glorious indulgence on this earth... food.

3.) What is your dream job?

I'm going to have to go with the occupation of Princess. I mean really, what kind of girl doesn't want to be a princess?! On a more serious note, something that involves food (my favorite part of life), makes other people giddy happy, and pulls on my heartstrings every morning.

4.) What was your favorite part interning at The Sugar Suite?

The intimate family-like working atmosphere and our weekly Tuesday morning meetings

5.) What is your favorite sweet? What is your favorite cake flavor at The Sugar Suite and why?

Decadent crispy waffle cones filled to the brim with rich chocolate gelato... Mmmmm...

Hands down the Mint chocolate cake- Woah, so good!! because It felt like the never-ending Girl Scout cookie! And thank goodness I didn't actually try it until my last day or I may have doubled in size had that glorious flavor combination entered my life any sooner during my time at The Sugar Suite.

6.) What is something you wish all future employers could know about you, they might not learn in an interview?

That I get a sure thrill out of feeling as if I am part of something bigger than my own strengths, that I can contribute to a team that is passionate and thorough in their field.

The Sugar Suite is hiring a Pastry Chef!

Here at The Sugar Suite we are a small business focused on personal service. We have received many accolades for our culinary quality and this is 100% attributed to the fantastic and passionate team in the kitchen! We are asked on a daily basis if we are hiring, and finally the answer is "yes!"

Here is a little bit more about who we think will be a good fit:

  • A candidate with a minimum of 2 years of professional baking experience
  • A candidate that is interested in working part time (12-24 hours a week, Monday & Tuesday)
  • A positive, passionate and self starting individual!

We want to truly get to know each candidate so we created the following questionnaire.

  • Why did you get into this industry?
  • What is your dream job?
  • What are three words you would use to describe yourself?
  • What are you passionate about? (multiple answers are fine)
  • Would you or anyone you know consider you a “perfectionist?”
  • What is something you want a future employer to know about you that isn’t always expressed in interviews?
  • In your opinion, what is the most important attribute a candidate must have for this position?

Feel free to visit our website for more information about our company
Email your resume, portfolio and responses to this questionnaire (cut and paste in an email is sufficient) to Jennyfer Mancino

Looking forward to meeting you!
