Got that song stuck in my head but it rings true for what’s been going on. So…where have I been? Enh, took an extended break for various reasons, one of the main ones being the tendinitis. I took 4 whole months off (that’s like 10 years for a caker) from caking and had 3 cakes planned for April. After the first one though I knew I was in for it. Seriously, how could I forget how to stack a cake?? And I was so wiped out and irritated with the whole thing that I didn’t even bother taking a picture. Yeah, that was….not the person I was a year ago.
The next cake I did was just as bad, everything turned out fine but by the time I was done I was in so much pain that I couldn’t have cared less if the cake made it out of the house or not. I decided (the next day when I was able to think clearly) that at least a year off cake decorating is needed. I know what kinds of treatments there are available and I appreciate everyone’s suggestions but I am going to wait this out.
The weird thing is that I’m ok with all this. A year ago the thought of not being able to decorate cakes would have had me in tears. But….God is so good! Not only have I had peace about it but I feel triumphant somehow, knowing He’s got my life and future in His more-than-capable hands is comforting and reassuring. I have plenty of other hobbies and interests to fill my artistic needs, round that out with still being able to bake and I’m on top of the world!
I’ll still be here, answering questions, posting occasional recipes for baked goods along with pictures. I’m looking forward to what’s ahead
