Musing of a home baker - “OMG! You’ve put on so much weight since the last I saw you!” Yes yes. I know. But here’s a question for you. Would you like to feel my rolling pin up where the sun doesn’t shine? I don’t understand how some bakers can remain thin when their daily duty requires them to be surrounded by cakes and other sweet treats? I mean seriously, do you not taste your baking?

BROWN SUGAR - Slice Of Happiness - “OMG! You’ve put on so much weight since the last I saw you!” Yes yes. I know. But here’s a question for you. Would you like to feel my rolling pin up where the sun doesn’t shine? I don’t understand how some bakers can remain thin when their daily duty requires them to be surrounded by cakes and other sweet treats? I mean seriously, do you not taste your baking? Are you not tempted to put some of that chocolate ganache in your mouth? What about that cream cheese frosting? Don't you want a taste? And what do you do when you get icing or batter or melted chocolate on your fingers? Are you telling you wipe them away with a kitchen towel? Seriously? Everytime I bake, I can practically hear the sugar singing to me, the chocolate calling my name, the buttercream whispering sweetly to me. Which is why I don’t get how some bakers can resist the urge. What’s wrong with you? And whoever heard of a skinny baker? In our society, if you bake cakes and you’re skinny, that means your cakes can't be that great. Or am I too old fashioned in thinking that way? Sure sure, staying fit is a must and you need to look good. But who says you can’t look good and eat your cake too? I go to the gym but I always have cake afterwards with a chocolate frappe and I bet I can still run miles around you. What I'm trying to say is... - clicksforcakes.com

“OMG! You’ve put on so much weight since the last I saw you!”

Yes yes. I know. But here’s a question for you. Would you like to feel my rolling pin up where the sun doesn’t shine?

I don’t understand how some bakers can remain thin when their daily duty requires them to be surrounded by cakes and other sweet treats? I mean seriously, do you not taste your baking? Are you not tempted to put some of that chocolate ganache in your mouth? What about that cream cheese frosting? Don’t you want a taste? And what do you do when you get icing or batter or melted chocolate on your fingers? Are you telling you wipe them away with a kitchen towel? Seriously?

Every time I bake, I can practically hear the sugar singing to me, the chocolate calling my name, the buttercream whispering sweetly to me. Which is why I don’t get how some bakers can resist the urge. What’s wrong with you? And whoever heard of a skinny baker? In our society, if you bake cakes and you’re skinny, that means your cakes can’t be that great. Or am I too old fashioned in thinking that way?

Sure sure, staying fit is a must and you need to look good. But who says you can’t look good and eat your cake too? I go to the gym but I always have cake afterwards with a chocolate frappe and I bet I can still run miles around you.

What I’m trying to say is… Enjoy life. Don’t get too caught up with looking good in a swimsuit. A person’s beauty comes from being happy. And nothing brings you more happiness than a slice of cake. Okay, maybe two slices of cakes.
