The gentle art of procrastibaking



Yes, I raise my hand up, as I am totally guilty of this.  In fact, this t-shirt, was probably made with me in mind.

Procrastibaking:  The art of making cupcakes instead of doing something else you should be doing.

Right now, I am knee-deep in receipts and invoices, in the Delights Office.  I need to complete my tax return by 31st January.  I have started off with the best intentions.  I get myself some coffee, I switch on the computer and I start crunching the numbers.  I neatly put everything under the right headings: Ingredients, Packaging, Postage, Cleaning Products, Equipment, Website updates and Deliveries. After about an hour of this, my mind starts to wander.  I drift off to more exciting subjects.  Being a creative type, crunching numbers and doing my tax return is incredibly boring, but it is very necessary.  As I type away and organise my receipts, my mind starts to think about other matters…

  • Decorating techniques
  • Flavour combinations
  • Themes
  • Colour combinations
  • Topping
  • Fillings
  • The fluffiness of frostings
  • Just anything to do with cake, really…

Before you know it, I am down in the Delights Kitchen, reaching for the vanilla extract, plugging in Penelope and baking up a storm.  Yesterday, I just had a yearning for plain old vanilla cake, so that’s how I got my bake-on.  I’ve got two days to complete this task and press the ‘go’ button, so I better stop procastibaking and get on with the job at hand!  I will keep you posted on how I get on….

  1. Ha-ha! Sounds very familiar, you’re not alone!

    • Did you get your accounts done, too? I managed to press the ‘submit’ button (or should I say that my lovely Accountant pressed the ‘submit button’) on Monday 30th at around 8pm. Feeling very peaceful now.
