I work alone, with no help at all. From start to finish. I bake, I decorate, I clean up everything all by my lonesome.
I am extremely exhausted.
My back and hands are hurting.
I am terribly sleep-deprived.
It has just been cake, cake, cake, and more cake these past few days. Cakes, in between taking the kids to school and picking them up, cooking meals, cleaning, washing, ironing and folding clothes, etc. You get what I mean...
|Angry Birds-themed red velvet cake|
|Batman-themed chocolate cake|
|Spiderman-themed red velvet cake|
|Super Mario-themed purple yam cake|
|Racing car themed purple yam cake|
There are actually more. These are just the ones that took my time and energy the most. Why were there so many birthday parties at the same time???? And they all wanted LARGE, decorated cakes.
I am passionate about what I'm doing BUT sometimes I just wish it would stop. OR I have to at least learn how to say no.
But then again, how can I, knowing I am somehow making little kids' birthdays more special with these cakes?
I don't know what to do.
