Isa ito sa Christmas gift sa akin ni Papa E. Lagi kasi akong nagbe-bake ng cakes and he's always very supportive of the things I love. But since having this plus being given a recipe book and a piping set - I suddenly found myself baking more than usual. Hanggang halos every weekend I end up trying a new recipe.
While this is good coz it makes me happy, I realise that I need to stop for a bit because of its downside. Usually Poj asks for merienda and I offer him fruits first and he'll eat them. But since I started baking weekly he now asks for cake before he eat his meals and for snack. I of course would refuse and this most of the time ends up in a meltdown.The other thing that's concerning is that we both gained weight! And that's not only because of the cakes, we know. But if you have a slice of cake after a hearty meal- most days of the week, the calories would sure to pile up. It has and now we have to do something about it.
This is the start. All our chocolates and dry baking ingredients have now been put away. I will make a big cake soon to use up the ingredients that I can't keep and I'll bring this for my colleagues to enjoy. =)
Hayz, good luck to us =)
