To be honest, I felt worried and afraid at first because I am a person who finds it hard to adapt to a new environment. College life is very different from the school life I was used to. It will take me some time to get used to it and I hope that it will go well with time.
Today, I am going to share about my hobby. Everyone has different hobbies. Hobbies tend to reflect the personality of a person. I like baking especially cakes. I have this memory of watching my grandmother mixing the batter of the cake in the kitchen. When I enter into the kitchen, the insane aroma of the cake would make my day. The cake made by my grandmother was fantastic, especially when fresh out of the oven. I guess my grandmother is the one who inspired me to start baking. It is very nostalgic for me whenever I think about it and it reminds me of my childhood staying with my grandmother.
I started to bake cakes when I was 11. I am glad that my parents were supportive because I used up a lot of their money trying to figure out the best techniques. As an 11-year-old, clumsiness is unavoidable. I had baked around up to 5 cakes before finally succeeded in coming out with a basic yellow cake. I can still remember how happy I was when I shared the cake with my family.
After that, I tried to bake different types of cakes. Some were successful but most of the time it didn’t turn out as expected. Over time, my skill improved a lot. I searched for recipes on the internet and watched a lot of YouTube videos on baking. Baking is something that helps me forget the problems in my life. I bake when I am sad or when I am stressed. Sometimes I bake when I am happy. For me at times words just are not enough, but a delicious cake is.
Here is the cake that I baked last week. Hope you enjoyed reading my story and that you can find something that makes you happy in your life as baking does for mine. Thank you!
