Thought I would add this as it’s on my mind following on from lovely the comment Momoe made re the cowboy cake. It’s another reason that I’ve discovered that I like blogging is that comments coming back are thought provoking….
Well that’s what this blog is for …a place for me to store my thoughts and anything else that comes to mind
The party has been and gone and the cake was a hit (thankfully!!) …My friend said she’s had lots of questions from the other Mums about whether I do or would make cakes for other people (as in charge them for it)….I’m not sure about that really for a few reasons.
– I do love making them and I worry if I start doing them more regularly I will stop loving it? If I’m honest this was the most relaxed I’ve been making a cake (I was admittedly a lot more organised …and long may it last ) but as a rule I do put quite a bit of pressure on myself when I’m making them because they are important to me. This is primarily because I know they are important to the person who’s asked me to make them and also because if it al goes horribly wrong it’s not much of a gift is it?!
– I’m not sure if they are good enough for someone to pay me for them…that is not false modesty…I look at some of the cakes on the internet on the various sites and blogs I visit and I am continually amazed – they are incredible. I don’t know if mine would stand up to scrutiny..and I never truly know how they are going to turn out …there can be a theme to head towards but I can never guarantee how it will look like eventually.
– Time…there’s never enough of it!!!!! The bottom line is I work full time, we live the life we live and that that entails which gives us little down time on the best of days…..I make cakes as a gift but would I want to add extra work on a more regular basis (because once you start…well you know how it can go potentially)
Anywhere there it is…it’s one of those things who knows what will happen in the future…Oh but in the meantime I’ve got another cake to make next month…party boys sister
