An interesting tidbit

Inheriting her love of cooking and baking from mom, she is proud to have passed that love onto her son.  Together they have been making beautiful cakes and desserts for friends and family for more than 10 years. She especially loves wedding cakes and the pleasure of being part of a couple’s special day.


Growing up, Antonette’s family home was always a gathering place. With more than 25 cousins, mostly younger than her, she enjoyed creating a makeshift classroom and playing teacher with her cousins as the students. Although Antonette’s career took a different path, she has always loved educating and is very happy to be part of the training team at Bernardi Resource Law LLP.  There is never a wrong time to teach or learn a lesson!
