When You Feel It, Just Do It!

Truth be told, I'm still struggling with my icing deco...Heck! Let me revise that...I'm still struggling with cake decorating to be exact :-P Sometimes whenever I home-schooled myself watching those You-Tube tutorials, I found myself shrieking, 'Oh my! I don't know how to do that!'...but most of the time it's 'Is that even possible?' :-P Yeah! I'm THAT lousy with icing decorations *blush*

Having zero knowledge in cake baking & decorating, I'm always doubting myself each time I'm about to try a certain icing design :-P Believe me, there are tonnes of icing design I wish I could master, yet I never ( ever! ) had the guts to even attempt it. Yup! I'm THAT unsure of my own cake skills!

I was feeling kind of tired being unsure of myself when something just strike me...Why should I torture myself with all this self-doubt?!! If I feel it, then just do it! I don't think I'll die if I fail, rite? The worst that will happen is that I'll have an ugly cake but it's still edible! Pretty sure my honey bunny wouldn't mind being my 'guinea pig' & indulge himself with my ugly cakes. Win - win situation, I would say :-P

With that in mind, I was gearing up for my next cake project when opportunity presented itself in the form of an order from Anim, one of my very first customer when I first started this goodies venture of mine :-) Yeayyyyyyyy!! Anim's request was for a Red Velvet cake, a birthday celebration cake she's arranging for her office colleagues. Being a regular customer, Anim ( bless her ), gave me total freedom in designing her cake :-)

I totally took this chance to have a go at one of the icing design that I've been dying to try...

My Very 1st Attempt At Making Roses Icing Deco On A Cake :-P

I was pretty worried with the outcome but seeing Anim's face when she picked up the cake was enough to put my mind at ease. Her 'ohhs' & 'ahhs' were enough to make my day ;-) It's always a major plus point to me, knowing my customer's happy with their goodies order. I just love that feeling!

To my dear Anim, even when I'm unsure of myself, you're always there to push me on :-) Your undying confidence in me is sincerely appreciated & I thank you! Thank you so much for all your support & I hope I'll be blessed with more of it :-)

Peeps, lesson to remember here...When you feel it, just do it! You wouldn't know what you're capable of until you try ;-) Now that I have a new 'motto', I'm so looking forward to my next project :-) Wish me luck!
