Well well well 2018… Here we are now, entertain us.
Apologies for the radio silence baking chums. 2018 has so far gifted me a large dose of writer’s block! But I’ve decided to beat it back with a new post, a fresh outlook and some awesome ideas for content.
I’m thinking that 2018 NEEDS to be the year of positively spamming you all with a ton of recipes, tutorials and other exclusive content – not to mention regular posts to let you behind the scenes of the Mr Baker’s Cakes kitchen.
I wanted to start the new year with a post about resolutions, but do you know, I don’t really know if I buy into them? It seems odd to me that we wait until the New Year to set ourselves goals. I’m always looking for new opportunities, all year round.
Not to mention, when it comes to new year resolutions, I tend to be… what’s the opposite of ambitious? As I said in my last post, every year I manage to shock myself with the crazy adventures my cake journey takes me on and it never fails to exceed my expectations EVERY SINGLE DARN TIME! There is no way I would be able to foresee even half of the opportunities it has afforded me and honestly, 2017 topped the chart as far as I’m concerned.
But I’m excited moving into 2018. I have sooooo many exciting projects lined up already: some amazing – and I mean SERIOUSLY amazing – collaborations (one of which may well end up being the biggest cake I have ever made); some more writing work (which I really am loving and I am so thankful to you all for reading it all); and some other things so hush hush, I can’t even allude to them yet.
But I do still have goals – they are just a bit different to those in previous years. I still want to continue to push the boundaries of my little hobby, but in addition to my cakes, I also want to continue to push myself as a baker.
I want to retry things that perhaps I’ve struggled with in the past.
I want to continue to experiment with patisserie.
I want to play around with desserts.
I want to finally feel like I have mastered bread!
So yeah, nothing particularly ambitious… 😉 Perhaps my new year resolution should be to develop a way to have more hours in a day?
Oh, and I want to FINALLY get to New York!
But anyway, how about you guys? What are you hoping to achieve in 2018?
