Sometimes, I make cakes!
My cousin is getting married! My aunt asked me to make the cake, and I couldn't say no. I was given free rein with it (their colors are black and plum) and I had a lot of fun designing it. I was trying to make something that reflected them and their style and I hope I succeeded. (Emma liked it at least, swipe for my little cousin devouring the cake).
I find cakes really stressful. I put a lot of pressure on myself worrying what everyone will think of it. Everything I do, I either learned from my mother or I taught myself, so I always kind of feel like I'm winging it, even if I've done it many times.
Over the past year I've come to realize my passion lies more with breads and batch baked pastries and desserts. I only make cakes for friends and family (or rather, my friends tiny children, if we're getting technical 😂). But after all is said and done, it's always worth it, so I'll continue to do so for my people when I can 👍🏻.
