I’m just getting whiny really because I’m having fun with the cake most of the time. It does sort of feel like “ephemeral art” but I might be trying to justify it all in my head.
Having said that, working with cake this time does feel a little different. I mean, the actual doing of it feels different than my last burst of cake activity. I feel like I’m paying attention this time; I’m actually thinking about it real time. I can’t really articulate it other than to say that a lot of my cake successes feel like they owe a lot to luck. (I’m honestly not slighting myself there, I’m just a big fan of luck.) These current successes feel like they were ability or (while I hesitate to say it, maybe, talent?)
Anyway, it was a tasty cake.
