I made a wedding cake.
If you've been around here a while, you probably know that I make cakes and cupcakes for different events.
This past weekend, a couple from Jacob's grandparent's church got married and I had the honor of making their cake and cupcakes. The best part was that the couple getting married were both widowed and the man was 82 years old. Just goes to show that love has no age boundaries.
The wedding was cowboy/rustic themed (hence the spur). I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
Being as this is my third wedding cake in the past year and I've done a lot of cupcake orders, people often wonder why I don't make baking my career. This is something I debated for a long time and straight out of high school, I went to culinary school. I only lasted there about 5 weeks before I decided that I needed more of an academic challenge. I still believe this to be true and I'm glad I'm getting my bachelors but there is still a part of me that wonders if I will ever be this passionate about anything else. I always worry that if I were to make baking my career, that I would eventually tire of it because it wouldn't be a hobby anymore but a means of living. And losing my passion for baking is something I would never want to do. But isn't loving what you do what it's all about? Aren't you supposed to make a career of what you are passionate about?
Just some of life's constant questions.
Hope your Wednesday is fabulous!
