Tomorrow is the start of a new adventure and one of my long term/short term goals I have made.
I will attend a few Cake Baking and Decorating Courses at a local Cake Shop. Why? Well, although I love cooking, baking is definitely my favourite thing to do in the kitchen and I would love to have my own little Tea Garden one day. I have always wanted to learn the ins and outs of baking and decorating and no better time than the present to start with this.
I am turning 36 this year and although Allegra is still not even a year old…I need to do something for me and not just be a Mommy. With this, I hope, that I can also earn a steady income some day and maybe leave this little dream, make it a reality and pass it on to the kids when Chris and I are grey and not that active anymore.
Further, and this will be the longer term goal if this adventure, I would like to open up my doors once or twice a week to give classes to the less fortunate and also to physically and mentally disabled people of all ages. I am extremely privileged….I have two gorgeous, healthy children…I have an awesome husband…and although I have been living with Multiple Sclerosis now for 12 years … I am healthy and happy and loved and this will be my way of giving something special to someone out there who might never have the opportunity. Food makes me happy….beautiful bakes makes me even more happy and what better way to make someone else less fortunate happy, by giving them a chance to make something not just gorgeous to eat, but gorgeous to look at and they might be able to use the skills they have learned, to better their own lives. So yes, this is the start of something small and something big. This is the start of making a dream happen and making dreams come true….This is something so small in the big world and something so big in my small world!
The PaperCup Kitchen was started in May 2011 with this in mind……and now my real journey starts and I hope you join me for the exciting ride. Hold on….it will definitely start off a little bumpy…poor teachers…BUT I can guarantee laughs and giggles and good recipes and a tear now and then for good measure 😀
Watch this space….the first feedback and photos will be posted on Wednesday and all that is left for me to say is..Yipeeeeeeee whooooo hoooooo!!!!!
(Note: The PaperCup Kitchen will not change that much. My daily posts stay the same now just with a little added sugar and spice and baking nice. My profile will change in the near future, I will not buy the image for my little business adventure, but the Lady on the new profile will look very similar to the one you see now….hehehehe, get what I am saying?)
