Stress Reliever

Lately my family and I have been under so much stress. There is so much sickness and just so many other things going on.  I could go on and on about what all is going wrong in my life but I won't do that to you lol. Anyways, I've needed a good way to relax and yesterday was the perfect day of all days to get some much needed stress relieved. I did some baking! I know you are probably thinking I'm crazy but I love to bake, especially decorating cakes.  It is something I really enjoy. I had the opportunity to bake my nephews birthday cake.  Afterall, Stressed spelled backwards is Dessert!


My nephew is a die hard fan of The Walking Dead so I made him this cake.  It was a white cake with buttercream icing. I used an edible image for the design......The best things in life are meant to be shared especially cake!

I enjoy baking for other people.  A lot of times I will bake something such as cake pops and deliver them to some of my friends. I think baking something or making a craft for someone is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to give a gift. I love bringing a smile to someones face. I love the gift of giving.

I would love to start making cakes and other desserts for a living but I don't have the time to do that with an 8 and a half month old who is into everything. Raylan keeps me on my toes but I wouldn't have it any other way. So for now, I will just let baking be my hobby.


What is your stress reliever?

  1. The cake looks great! You're so talented! So glad you were able to wind down with baking. It's hard to find the time to do that when there is so much going on! Mine favorite way is a hot drink (shocker) and either a book or TV show. But usually TV wins :)

  2. What a YUMMY looking cake. I think you should consider cake making for a business at least as needed or part time. My stress reliever is actually doing the dishes sometimes or just driving and getting coffee. I am sorry that life has been so stressful, praying for ya!
