“I can accept failure, but I can’t accept not trying.” -Michael Jordan

So, today I would like to talk about something that occurred just a few hours ago. It really all started a couple of days ago. My soon-to-be sister-in-law has a birthday today (22) and I came up with the BRILLIANT idea to make her cake. Well, there was a cake that I had seen and I was dying to make it. HAHAHAHAHAHAH! Being more of a beginner baker, I didn’t realize how “in over my head” I was. It wasn’t horrible (it’s standing) but it wasn’t as easy as the lady made it seem. No worries, it will work.

Anyway, this is the link to the cake I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpNnCB4Mvk4&t=269

If anyone attempts it, let me know how it turns out for you! Don’t give up, either, because you CAN do it. Thankfully I had my aunt here to help me when I got frustrated. color I did seemed to break, which started my frustration. Then the frosting wasn’t spreading like she had done. Again, I am still a beginner baker and am still learning, haha. Next time I will do something a little more simple.

What have you made recently? What has made you frustrated recently? Just keep pressing on and you can get through it. The cake is only as hard to make as you let it be….and if you attempt something well about what you are capable of doing. Try going for the smaller one first 🙂

I have to get ready for the “party” see y’all on Friday!

The green, blue, and purple ones were cooling on plates...half of each of them stuck to the pans (even though I had sprayed the pans)...
