I’ve mentioned to you before that I enjoy making cakes every now and then, and I wanted to give you a little update on my hobby. Cake decorating provides me with a way of expressing creativity without getting quite as stressed out as was common for me back in my art school days. Of course, I still get stressed out with decorating cakes, but at least this way the mental distress is limited to the space of hours instead of days or months.
In recent weeks, I’ve tried to be more purposeful about developing my baking and decorating skills in the hopes of turning this hobby into a little side business at some point in the future. I thought you might enjoy taking a look at some of my recent creations. Although working in fondant is a lot of fun, all of my recent cake requests have been for buttercream. Every cake is a learning process for me, and so far God has graciously protected me from causing any major disasters!
First, a church baby shower cake…
A birthday cake for my friend’s mother
Another baby shower cake
A Valentine’s cake for the ladies in my Bible study
And finally, a birthday cake for my friend’s little boy
Hope you enjoyed the photo tour! I’ll keep you updated on my progress. =)
