Week 9 - Lucky For You There Is Cake In Your Future.
I love cake. I love to make cakes. I love how it celebrates special moments in life. Cupcakes don't send the same message as a cake. Cake, is love wrapped up in a house built to bring the mind and body joy. I, however, can never make a cake to look beautiful. I'm not self-deprecating. I am just bad at making a pile of flour, eggs, and sugar look darling. I've taken cake decorating classes. Every year I bake my kids their birthday cakes to practice the cake arts but each time my creations look more like unicorn poop than a layered plate of happiness. I've been telling myself it's because I make everything from scratch, but the bottom line is I'm not very good at making cakes look amazing.
Today, I took the cake decorating head on. I started with a pre-packaged cake mix to dispell the myth that I can't decorate like a diva. Let's see if taking a bit of time to do research, whipping up a bowl of frosting, and giving it an old college try will make a difference. Sometimes we have to try again and again to make headway on our dreams.
Here is the result of about three hours worth of work:
That's pretty good, but the photo only shows the front. The back is missing most of the frosting and the marshmallows. It just goes to show, when we put some elbow grease into a project it still can turn out mediocre. However, it's important to keep going and find time to work on things in our lives that are important to us.
