I want to be like the noble woman of Proverbs 31, I really do, but I have to admit I’ve always felt somewhat hindered by a few of her outstanding character traits. In addition to that whole early-rising thing (although Evangelle is certainly helping me in that area!), I’ve also found her business savvy to be just a tad bit intimidating.
I don’t know anything about real estate or which fields would be worth buying. I think my sad little overgrown garden serves as sufficient proof that I lack the skills necessary for planting and tending a vineyard. And although I have taken a few sewing lessons, I’m still a long way from being able to sew linen garments or sashes that anyone would be willing to buy. :)
But…I have discovered in recent years that I do enjoy baking and decorating cakes. Maybe I could do something Proverbs 31-ish with that?
With that thought in mind, I’ve begun taking steps to turn my hobby into a little side business (probably very little). While I worked on getting the necessary license for selling cakes from home, I gave my friends the opportunity to help me expand my cake decorating portfolio by making their cakes at cost, and a few of them were kind enough to help me out.
Here are a few photos showing the fruits of my labor…
This week, I’m excited about having the opportunity to make a wedding cake for some dear friends who are getting married this coming Saturday. It should be fun, but a wedding cake is also a big responsibility.
Prayers for my sanity will be much appreciated!
