I have been getting really into baking recently. While cooking stresses me out, I find baking relaxing and enjoyable (as long as there is no time pressure!). I think I am doing pretty well on the taste front with my baking but what I haven't mastered is making my bakes look really pretty. I have seen so many STUNNING cakes on pinterest, and I always wish I could whip up something like that for a friend for a birthday (or wedding even??!!) - but alas so far it has not happened yet. These are a few of my favourite looking cakes and what I am working towards. I have never done a tiered cake before and that is definitely something I would like tackle in 2014.

Anyone else got any baking aspirations?
