Day 188 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Write about baking.
Shannon: My grandma still owned her bakery when I was a kid, so when she babysat I got to spend time there at night, helping her test out new recipes. She’d only make small batches so my arm was her mixer while she added the ingredients. I loved when she would show me how to decorate the different pastries with her frosting tools. It made me feel special to be in on all of her baking secrets.
Erin: Baking is tedious. It requires so much measuring and heating and patience and precision. The process would be all fun and games if it were the only way for me to get a piece of cake. However I can get a whole cake at the shop down the road and theirs tastes a heck of a lot better.
Time to bake up another story.
