Guys! I finally got to make a purse cake! I’m so happy it came out well 🙂 Ever since I could start baking I’ve wanted to make one. But thanks to a mixture of lack of experience and self doubt I felt like I couldn’t. I made this cake because I really wanted to remind myself that I am a good baker/cake decorator. In the pastry world everything must be visually perfect. That constant perfectionism wears on people down after awhile. Makes people afraid of creating new things and making mistakes. Of course, being perfect is a completely unrealistic expectation, we are human making mistakes are completely normal.
I’ve come to realize to succeed I have to fail many, many times. When I first got into this industry I made soooo many mistakes. The amount of times I messed up a recipe, miss counted an amount, and dropped desserts was ridiculous. I was convinced that I was going to be fired every.single.day. That kind of stress really wore me out which eventually led to me being too anxious to make anything at home. It resulted in my blog and self improvement declining. I’ve decided to stop caring about being perfect. Don’t get me wrong I’ll always try to perfect my craft but I will not let it control my life.
