Who would have ever thought that my hobby would become such an important part of my life. I may not be Duff Goldman or Buddy Valastro, when it comes to baking cakes, or a Colin Cowie the ultimate party planner, but in the last ten months I have ventured away from just being Mom and discovered a little of Jennifer.
From peanut-butter cupcakes for the workplace and basketball banquets ……
to arranging fruit and veggie trays for a girlfriend from high school.
From taking the lead in decorating for our twenty year class reunion …..
to Samantha’s engagement party last month..
From hors d’ourves for a baby shower….
to cakes every month, now, I am seeing my hobby become a little more of my reality.
It’s something I never saw coming.
This past weekend I was asked to do a “jungle” cake for a 6 year olds birthday party. It wasn’t the prettiest cake, but oh my, did it taste good!
Cake seems to be the flavor of the month as I am doing a bride and groom cake for a large wedding next week, and a birthday party the following week.
And this weekend I will be taking part in a Food Blogger’s Bake Sale in Atlanta to raise money for the Share Our Strength charity.
I am planning to do several basic cakes and cupcakes for this. So, my friends, I am posing to you the same question that I asked my friends on Facebook…..
If you were to purchase a cake at a bake sale, what would you look for?
I look forward to reading your suggestions!
