Baking. It used to be my escape. I used to do it for the mere challenge. And now it seems that I have lost touch with it, preferring to do…I have no idea what, exactly. I’ve been doing a lot of baking for people who order things, and so I end up not baking just for the hell of it anymore. I’ve wanted to experiment more with vegan/gluten-free and yet that hasn’t happened yet. Where is the inspiration? I do not know.
It’s become something that I’m known for among my friends, and now I guess I’m used to the fact that I can bake well that I don’t seem to want to challenge myself anymore. Or it could also be that life events have been taking up more of my energy and attention. Or I’m no longer trying to prove anything to myself. I do miss writing in this blog with a passion though. I’m not sure what’s happened to me. Perhaps the novelty has worn off. I do not know…
I will say that I love putting my skills to good use, especially when I’m baking for a charitable cause. I will almost never turn down a chance to bake for a charitable event. I would probably only say no if either logistics or time conflicts got in the way.
I’m sure I’ll be back in the proverbial saddle again…someday.
