History shows that baking might have been around for more than 14 thousand years.  And in that time, it has evolved so much, but at the same time, much joy can still come in these days of high technology, by going back to the basics of baking.

Baking Therapy

Baking is therapeutic to so many people, helping with stress and anxiety.  It can be fun getting kids involved and at the end of it all – you have some tasty bakes to enjoy or gift. 

We are not so happy about the mess and clean up, but the joy of creating something from scratch makes up for that.  Baking can also develop better self-esteem as you push yourself into new territory. 

I always say, no matter how much experience and years of baking and qualifications you have, there is always something new to learn in baking.  And if you love learning and developing your skills, baking is for you.
