Presently, Shinni is the chef & baking instructor of BakinCalf. Since BakinCow’s founding in 2007, she has conducted many baking classes as well as baked numerous cakes for birthday, anniversary and wedding.

Thus, she decided to do just that – bake high-quality cakes and teach others how to bake delicious wholesome cakes for everyone to enjoy by setting up the BakinCalf baking and decorating classes. In order to hone her craft, Shinni devoted herself to getting her baking certification through professional courses with Creative Culinaire, Wilton, CerealTech and other stalwarts in the industry and fine-tuning her recipes through meticulous scientific research.
