A few weeks back I ordered a cake pop maker called Babycakes. It came with the plates for cake pops, mini cupcakes & donuts. So far I have only used the cake pops plate. I had been working on the recipe for yummy yet moist pops. Finally after several tries and having everyone in my house eating pops for days. Asking over and over "Are they moist?" I found a recipe that works and taste great. So far I have only made complete pops once. Meaning baked, put on sticks and dipped in the candy coating. They were just simple little pops. Nothing fancy or over the top. Just dipped and sprinkled with some colored sugar sprinkles.
So soon I'll be passing out pops with the cake orders that are to come. Just think of them as little samples of what is new to come at the Inn.
As for today, nothing big happened. The kids were off from school, President's Day. All I did was clean. I washed dishes, did some laundry, swept the floors. You know, the basic duties of any stay at home mom. After everything was said and done. The kids were fed and showered and asleep. As I sat at my kitchen island, bored. I just let my mind wonder in all different directions. Finally coming back with a decision that could change my life for good or just be an experience that will go down as "Hey, at least I tried." I want to write a book. A book about my cakes.
The other day while going to deliver a cake, the Hubby asked a simple question that I have never really thought about until then.
"What do you want to do in life?"
That little question made me think about what I'm doing in this moment and what I would like to do in the future. I thought about it since then and it finally hit me. I stopped to look around and think what are the things I'm good at, the things I love to do and the things around me that make me happy. First off I really enjoy staying home. I know what everyone is thinking, who wouldn't enjoy that. But I really do. I like doing the household chores, grocery shopping, tending to the kids, watching them learn and grow. Another thing I enjoy doing is my cakes. Spending hours baking, decorating and creating something new with every order I get. And last, I love to write. This blog has taken me back to those days in high school when I would just write for no reason what so ever. Writing for me is a release that I can put my thoughts into words and just let go.
So with much thought, I am going to work on getting a book together. Sharing what I love to do with the world. And of course I'll keep everyone updated. This blog is just the beginning. The beginning of something great! To all my reader and followers, have a good night and a better tomorrow.
