I basically spent my last month and a half of 2015 baking non-stop. It’s usually my sweet spot (that was completely unintentional but now I’m giggling). Somehow I ended up exhausted and drained from it all. Add in a minor car accident the week after Birthday Season ended, and getting sick after Christmas and I said these words on New Year’s Day, “I think I’m going to take a little break from baking. I need to dial it back a bit”.
Tomorrow is Epiphany or Three Kings’ Day. The holiday celebrates the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child. For a New Orleans girl it marks the beginning of Carnival Season and King Cake! I said I was going to cut back on the baking and I really meant it at the time, but one look at a post from a high school friend saying she can’t believe she’s actually home for King Cake Season and I am in the kitchen making King Cake dough. Jealousy is a horrible thing. I lied. I’ll be having something that looks like this tomorrow.
