    my advice, first of all follow your heart. Secondly, I would take a food training or culinary arts program first, to generalize yourself with the industry, then from there dive into a specialized pastry chef program.
    I am just thinking that a little more insight into the industry will help you in the long run.
    all the best,

    You have the passion and drive, great. But you also want to run a business. That means you are the tightrope AND the safety net, so you also have to think a bit about the business aspect of things.

    No matter how good your food is no one will buy it if they don't know about it.

    This is a very profound statement, focus on it. How will you make customers know about your food and service?
