After about 89days of January it’s finally February! January was longgggg, tiring, mentally exhausting and physically draining but we made it!
We all have different coping mechanisms. I tend to resort to food(sweets/cakes etc) and love to bake to that helps me relax a bit.
There’s something relaxing about concentrating on measuments, temperatures and trusting an oven to do the miracle of raising the cake for the right amount of time without burning or flopping 🙈 I still pray for the best though and try to keep all the kids and my partner from opening the oven door to see whats baking.
I get my recipes from facebook, instagram, friends & family and obviously pinterest! I start off by doing exact measurements then after a few tries I experiment. So yes my cakes don’t always taste the same but they’re always yummy.
Baking keeps my concentrated on something I can control and gets me excited about the outcome. Once that goes well i start on the more stressful areas in my life and just like with the cakes I pray that it will go well.
