To say that there wasn’t a lot going on this week would be the understatement of the year. If you read last week’s post, you would know that I moved this weekend. Because all my focus needed to go towards packing, my initial plan for week 27 was to make a box cake and call it a day.
For Memorial Day Weekend I took a little road trip to Michigan to visit my boyfriend’s family. And by little I mean approximately one hour and 45 minutes away. After living in the city, this seems like quite a distance in the car… anyways, after long car rides I typically find myself in the exact same place. The bathroom.
(They didn’t call me little tank on spring break for nothing).
I knew there would come a week in this project where I felt thoroughly unmotivated and unexcited about making cake. This week might have been one of those weeks.
It’s not that I didn’t want to bake or spend time in the kitchen, it’s that I didn’t really want to bake cake. I found myself day dreaming about other types of projects, scones, biscotti, I even procrastinated the weekly task by spatchcocking a chicken (which I do not recommend unless you have a very very sharp kitchen knife and an iron stomach).
My cakes have been gaining quite the buzz at my workplace. Every Wednesday, when the cake goes live before I head into the office, I’m met with multiple g-chats and questions surrounding the cake. Mostly, people want to know who is eating all of it and what flavor next week’s creation will take on…
