I want to level with you; can I just be real here (among the filtered photos and selfie lights)? I actually have some baking fears…Yes, fears about certain bakes cakes and recipes. There are things that I have just backed away from, due to some irrational fear. But this year, I am determined to face my fears and bake it out and see what happens.
The main reason that I have been fearful of certain culinary skills is that there has been a tiny voice in my head saying ‘What you get it wrong?…What if you mess up?’.
One of my fears has been making meringues…Yes, light, fluffy, dainty meringues. Can you believe it? I’ve been setting myself a weekly challenge to bake or create something new, based on what I have been shying away from.
I’m now at the stage in my life, where I’m saying ‘so what?’ to that voice, because messing up is all part of the learning. So take a look at what I made earlier. Let’s see what I get up to next week.
