24 CUPCAKES, 24 UNIQUE DESIGNS
If you're a professional cake decorator you'd be looking at the heading thinking "OH DEAR!". And yes, "OH DEAR!"it was. Actually, the email request for the cupcakes started off with "THIS MAY BE YOUR BIGGEST NIGHTMARE !~!".
Of course I was intrigued! I am always up for a cake challenge! The cupcake order was for a very lucky bride whose Maid of Honour (MOH) had the brilliant idea of having designs which meant something to the bride (Future MOHs, take note!). As I went through the list of 24 designs I thought that sounded OK: Chanel? Easy. Tiffany? Piece of cake.
Then as my eyes moved further down the list I saw "frog"...hmmm...."Malaysia flag"...woah...."Mini Cooper"...*sweat*
Ok, breathe. Just breathe.
I started to think I was in waaaayyyyyy over my head with this...but then I thought there was no way to see how far I can go with this if I don't push myself. Like with anything: fitness, sport, any skill or talent, one can only see how far they can go and one can only learn by stepping out of their comfort zone. In the words of one of my favorite actresses, Jennifer Aniston, "Everything you want in this world is just right outside your comfort zone".
So a step right outside my comfort zone I shall take!
