If at first you don't succeed
I have been baking and cooking since I was very young. It really is a true passion of mine. I love to cook and bake for my family and friends. When I was about 12 or so I had just took a cake out of the oven and had set it on the counter to let it cool. I guess I got a little impatient (well, okay, a lot impatient) and tried to remove the cake from the pan before it had cooled enough. It would have been okay, except I tried to do it over the sink where there was a bowl of soapy water. You guessed it, it landed right in the soapy water! I remember being so upset about it. I was telling my daughter the other day that if I had let that stop me from ever trying to cook or bake again just because I failed, it would have been terrible and my own family would never have enjoyed the benefits of my cooking and baking. Don't be afraid to try again even if you make mistakes. I promise you, you will be much better for it!
