I can’t believe the year is almost over!
In a few days we’ll be entering 2011. So what do I have to show for 2010?
Well, my lovely cakes, of course!
And it all started with one “little” castle cake that I took on rather ambitiously, especially since I had no I idea what I was doing when I was doing it. The end result is not my favourite, but was the delight of the recipient who received it – and that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?
Since July, I’ve been staying up late at night, mixing up batches of cakes (and
occasionally cupcakes & cookies), burning my fingers against hot cake pans, rolling fondant, cutting fondant, spreading frosting, piping frosting … well, you get the picture. What have I learned during my late night endeavours?
- That sleep is few and far between, some nights in my house.
- That I really do watch way too much “Ace of Cakes” and “Cake boss”.
- Fondant is a great invention!
- And although I’m a perfectionist/ control freak at the highest point of stress when trying to get every little detail set in the right way on my cakes – I truly enjoyed every single moment creating them.
To all my friends and family
who have been nothing but supportive (and have acted as guinea pigs
trying some new recipes and flavours)
Here’s hoping that 2011 brings on more challenges, more cakes, cupcakes and treats.
