Looking back at 2014

I moonlight as a baker, and spend my days as a digital marketer. I recently put together a review of the year that was 2014 in digital advertising, and realized that I should probably put together a review of the year for Blissfully Insane too, especially since I didn’t necessarily post about all the stuff I worked on this past year.

2014 was a personally fulfilling year for me as a baker. It was the year I took my skills to the next level, incorporating visual art in my culinary endeavors. It started a little tentatively as I modeled my first 2 tier cake for a friend’s baby shower, and then escalated quickly through interesting challenges my family put before me. So here it is, a review of my year as a baker.

Here’s hoping that 2015 brings even more interesting baking challenges my way.
