I thought long and hard about the cake I would bake to celebrate one year of blogging, scratched many designs and flavours, and last night… I finally just did it. Instead of doing fancy buttercream designs like I had intended to, I decided to keep it simple and homey, very much what I like to think I am.
Some may beg to differ, but I’ll talk to you lot later.
Anyway, I’d just like to say thank you to everyone who reads this blog, to my family and friends who have supported me, and also helped me move the ever-growing stock of desserts off my refrigerator shelves. I love you all. This past year has been so special for me; I found something I actually really love doing, a great combination of writing and baking, and it’s just helped me so much.
I first started baking intensely after my first actual heartbreak, and I started blogging about baking after my second. I never realized until this past year how important it is to just take time for myself, to get to know who I am, to listen to how I feel and think about things; just quality time with myself, you know?
I’m in this place right now where I’m so happy with who I am and enjoying the fact that I’ve given up pretending to be somebody everyone else thinks I am or should be, and I have Ellebug, or The Happy Hufflepuff (hehe), to thank for it.
So here’s to a year of baking, and hopefully, many more to come!
Isn’t the Ellebug Cake the cutest thing? 😉
