I have been wanting to work with fondant a little bit more so that I can start using it more on cakes so this weekend I made some marshmallow fondant and this is the cake that I made. I know it's not real fancy but I couldn't think of a cute design to do so this is what I ended up with.
I would love to be able to use the fondant as well as other cake decorators do. Sometimes I feel like I haven't really improved in the years since I have been decorating cakes but I know I have at least a little bit. I wish that I could just go volunteer at a bakery or somewhere where people can just give me tips on the things that I really need help on.
Before we moved here I applied to Harmon's and I got a call from the bakery manager and she told me to call her when we moved to UT but because I love the hours of the doctors office I never called her and looked at getting a job in the medical field. It's had it's perks of that but at the same time how much better of a decorator would I be if I ended up with that job???? I know that I can't just sit and dwell on the what ifs but I just need to figure out how to improve different things.
I hope to have my own bakery one day because I love to bake and seeing peoples reactions when what I baked turns out delicious. I need to just be more adventurous and try more recipes and perfect the ones that I know. I admire people that are always trying new recipes and making cute things all the time. So my goal for this year is to try more recipes and try ones that I might be intimidated by just to say that I can do them. That may mean that people may be getting some of my creations because if I leave them here then I will eat them all.
Does anyone know of any good culinary schools??? I really would like to go to one but it seems like they are all during the day and I really don't want to have to find a night job but maybe that's what I'm going to have to do. I went and checked out the Art Institute of Utah but it was like $50,000 for a year and a half and yeah they had cool programs but I just can't justify spending that much money!!! Sometimes I just feel like my life has no direction and I just have to pick what I want to do and just focus on it and do it but sometimes it comes back to my hopes of one day having children. I think that I have put my life on hold just waiting for that time to come instead of living my life and then make adjustments when the kids eventually come. I just need to change my way of thinking and do the things that I have always wanted to do!!!
