In which I don’t share a recipe, but lots of news instead
I’ve been itching to come here and type a few words, share some of the recipes I have stashed away, edit some pictures that have been pending for a week, and most of all do some cooking-shooting-blogging. Life has been hectic, with many changes bubbling beneath the surface. I just wrote a mammoth post about it here, giving updates and explanations for going missing in action.
It’s been over a week since I have posted anything here, and even though I have enough drafts to keep me going for a while, I’m longing to get back in to the normal flow of things. Of course meals are still being cooked at home. A girl and a boy still need their daily sustenance, but there just has been no time. Scratch that, mindspace, actually. To sit and document it. You know how they say when the going is good, things begin to snowball and roll into a frenzy? No, nobody really said that. I just made it up, because that’s how I feel.
What have I been up to?
Well I’ve been toying with the idea of selling cake! This might not be a surprise for those of you who already follow me on facebook, but the truth is I’ve moved from informally making cake for friends to believing them when they say they’d pay money to eat my bakes! Yeah, they asked for it. Now they’re going to have to pay me every time they ask for cake.
Imagining, building, writing, checking, designing, baking, shooting. Its been a hectic couple of weeks and things are finally shaping up. On the baking side itself, there has been orders, deliveries, recipe testing, tasting, tweaking, finalising, and it has kept myoven as busy as me!
It’s funny how when I was in the throes of miserable notice period blues and I was baking to save my life, and I nonchalantly said “If only someone would pay me to bake all these cakes,” I didn’t in my wildest dreams imagine I’d be doing it in some part, just 12 months down the line.
The going has been good, but for the whole story, you’re going to have to go on and read it there.
