Just do it!

ImageHey everyone! I went away this past weekend so between that and baking for Valentines day, I had a very busy week and was unable to write anything. I wanted to give you guys a recipe, devotion, or something. I just did not have the time but I hope that everyone had a great Valentine’s Day.  Last week, I really challenged myself to step up my baking skills and do something that I haven’t done before. I worked with fondant when I did my daughters first birthday cake and in my cake decorating classes but that was it. I decided that I really wanted to create some awesome cakes but I was super nervous about trying it out. People who know me well know that I am a perfectionist and my own worst critic. So I wanted everything to be perfect but I kept telling people I couldn’t do it when I never tried. Yes, I definitely wanted more experience but that was no excuse, especially since I knew the basics. I then got an order for a two tier baby shower cake! I didn’t even know how to tier a cake! Instead of turning the job down as I always do, I took it! Whenever I bake anything I ask God to bless my hands and guide me so that I can do my very best. Then as I was working on the topper of my cake I suddenly grew very confident about the work that I am capable of. My cake ended up coming out very well and now I can’t wait to step out the box and try new things! What do you guys think of it? Has this happened to anyone else? Please comment and share your experiences.
