I think that watching Barefoot Contessa inspires me to have fun while baking , because once in a while I tend to forget why I love what I do (baking). Ina Garten makes you feel that cooking and baking is not just technique, knife skills, perfect plating, or being stressed out. Instead Ina Garten reassures you that cooking and baking can be a leisurely, professional and most of all tasty & pretty.
I know I haven't been too productive on updating the Cake Girl blog, but I assure you I will catch up soon. Until then I will leave you with some Hot Pink Sprinkled Shortbread. My inspiration-Ina Garten.
