Done with cakes, thought I'd check in one last time- - Page 2

post #16 of 22
Eventually, I would love to 1 large cake a week, and be done. I get burned out when I have too many small cakes. Its no fun anymore, I'm like Ugh, gotta go do another cake!
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Read every word of the blog.   Although I've always admired your work, I'm so glad to hear you are happy!  Love the garden.

Oh thanks so much, you guys!!!!!  You can't imagine how sweet it was to wake up and read all these notes today.  I must have hit a nerve with that post--it's had over 310 views already icon_eek.gif

 

costumeczar...I know, right?  I didn't even think that list of *Doing This*...instead of... *That*, would end up going so long, but when I started thinking of it as a comparison, it was ALL true (plus so many more)... 

 

You're right, that list *should* be required reading, lol.  Just a reality check, really.  Make sure you're willing to be doing...*this*...instead of...*that*.  -It's not all sugar and spice and everything nice... ;) Obviously, feel free to share any of that with newbies; if my experience can help anyone, I'm all for it. 

 

I love my life so much now; and it's just absolutely heartwarming to hear all your lovely support!!  I do plan to keep blogging and whatever, because it's fun, so feel free to follow there, and thanks for the shouts out on Twitter, too!

 

I can (almost) feel a cake for our family coming soon...I'm actually kind of craving cake lately.  It's been over 6 months since I even picked up a piping bag or greased a pan, and I haven't eaten a bite of cake in that time, so probably soon, maybe.

 

I will be adding all my prior recipes to my cookbook project, so I'm sure the craving for cake will increase accordingly.

 

Thanks again, you guys are awesome

 

Heading out to pick pickles and basil :D

Oh my gosh you guys.  I'm still finding things from my cake days that make me go-- "What?!?"

 

I blame insomnia, but the other night I found a to-do list from May of 2012...Why did I actually think I could pull that off?!?

I haven't baked anything resembling a cake since February, but I DID do a wedding this summer for our neighbor's daughter, who I've known since she was 4.  She's had a long, hard year, with her mom being diagnosed with possible MS, grandfather diagnosed with Parkinson's in his 50s, unexpected pregnancy (and subsequently--wedding) in her 2nd year of nursing school, and then lost her dad (our neighbor) in a motorcycle accident over the 4th of July.  He missed his first grandson by 3 weeks, and her wedding by 2  months, so it was a bittersweet wedding for sure.

 

I was glad to do a cake for her, and it turned out great and was delish, but...yeah...I'm not into it any more at all and never sorry that I came home.  I think I'm baking for a cake walk for our school tomorrow, and they realllly want red velvet, but even that just seems like... eh...bleh.  I may do something else.

 

My family has never been happier, the garden did great, and I love my un-scheduled life again. Hope you're all doing great!

 

toodles-

I'm ready to retire just as I'm about to realize my full dream. Getting everything you always wanted is scary.
So glad you're happy!
