MORRIS HEIGHTS - A 13-year-old boy is turning heads in the Bronx with his baking skills.

Jose Martinez says he bakes a cake from scratch every day for his family and sometimes his classmates.

Martinez says his grandmother was his first mentor in the kitchen.  He says starting as early as 6 years old he would bake cakes with her.

Martinez says he would like to open a bakery one day.  Until then, he says he's happy making cakes for his friends at no charge.
