Hi and welcome! I’ve been so immersed with baking lately, I thought I would chronicle my adventures in this hobby. I have a regular job which leaves me the weekends, and sometimes weeknights, to devote to my “sugary” projects.
Baking, to me, is such a wonderful medium of creative expression. It arouses all my senses– the feel of soft, voluminous whipped egg whites, the fragrance of something baking in the oven, the sight of your creation and even the soft crackling sound of a cake when you test it for doneness.
I studied Fine Arts in college, and painted quite a lot, but unlike painting, in baking you have to make your own medium that is the frosting and build your own canvas that is the cake. Best of all, you get to eat your work! It does take a little bit of time, but it’s all worth it.
What can I say, among all the hobbies I’ve had, baking takes the cake!
