Sometimes I feel like I’m just phoning it in.


There’s nothing like the internet to make you feel inadequate.

And while I consider myself a relatively good cook, photos of the latest trend in baking shared by a friend are making me doubt my commitment.



Because, to be honest….



This type of magic never occurs in my kitchen.



I can’t even blame it on not having the time…



Because that’s something I have plenty of right now.



So all I can say is …. stop.



Stop making the rest of us look like slackers.




Now you’re just showing off.

  1. They are gorgeous to look at, but I can’t imagine wanting to spend that much time doing that. I hate cooking enough as it is, I don’t want to spend all day trying to make it a work of art, too.

  2. Those are beautiful! I tend to avoid Pinterest and every year when I host Back to School night with a roomful of parents, I make it clear to them that I am not a Pinterest Teacher, but more of a Pinterest Fail Teacher. I am not opposed to trying cutesy things, but as long as we are all clear that nothing I actually make will be positively received on Pinterest, we are all good.
    Besides, those are too cute to eat and I would rather eat that sigh in admiration with a growling belly.

  3. And then there’s the whole disheartening aspect of spending ALL that time creating and baking a gorgeous piece of art then some pack of low-grade relatives rips it apart and devours it in three seconds. I would snap…
