THANK YOU to my faithful readers who’ve been keeping up with my blog even when I haven’t been posting regularly these past two weeks. You know the holiday season’s super hectic and I’m sort of glad it’s over. This year’s been the BUSIEST YET CALMEST holiday season for me EVER! I’ve had more orders this year than the past two Christmases combined but the KEY is to stay organized, be well-stocked with ingredients and to ASK FOR HELP from others.
Amongst 1000 cookie orders last week, I also got to make my very first Christmas cake! It was a penguin-themed cake and all I could think of when putting this together was an embarrassing conversation I had while walking home in grade 4. In elementary school we had to write and present speeches of the topic of our choice at the end of the year. The person with the best speech in the class would then be a representative at school competition. There was definitely a rivalry between classes and the topics each chose. While walking home one afternoon, a girl (Janice W – yup! I still remember her name) from the rival class and I were talking about speeches. She told me her classmates were doing their speeches on world hunger, poverty, disease, slavery etc… and when she asked me what my speech was about… I said…
Ha ha… funny girl. The sad thing was, I was serious!
