Since I've started to bake few years ago, I really got hooked into baking that every time I go to shops or malls, the first items that I would check are baking tools and ingredients. Same thing is true when I go to supermarket. Baking has since then became a passion to me. I would admit that I turned it into business as I do accept made to order cakes and pastries but more than an earning opportunity, I consider baking as something that I really love to do. It is where I can express myself, my style, my creativity and of course...my patience. Yes...patience! This is so because baking is time consuming especially if you are making elaborate designs for your cakes. I wish I could own all the top of the line baking tools and equipment but currently I do not. I just own the basic tools and equipment which would enable me just to bake and explore things in my humble kitchen. Sometimes, I don't even earn that much but it is my burning passion and love for baking that keeps me going. I also feel very happy every time I receive compliments from my clients. It inspires me more to develop my skills and learn more. Because of baking, I became adventurous and want to try and experiment on almost anything. This, apart from gardening is the one that's taking most of my time now.
Here are few of my finished products. Definitely not perfect but at least I've done something that I get satisfied with.
I know that I still have a lot to learn when it comes to baking but I am happy enough that I could make these baked goodies even without any formal training or education. I was hooked into my corporate job for so many years that I have not had enough time exploring things at home. After I've resigned from my job and decided to become a freelancer and a full time Mom, this is where I begin to search for what my heart really wants. Now, I used to cook a lot of different dishes aside from baking, gardening and crafting. My hands are full with all my hobbies and passions and I could say that I couldn't be happy enough.
