Things I am feeling challenged but excited! Reading more into everything that comes a long with an independent learning project has me pretty excited. For my project I decided to do baking, I already know how to do the simple things but I want to learn and create the more challenging baked goods. I decided to do baking because my grandmother always made the best baked goods and I have always wanted to be able to bake like her. So I here I am with a bunch of her recipes ready to dive in and make it happen.

My independent learning project is going to focus on my becoming an amazing baker. I want to become an amazing baker just like my grandmas was. She always had some sort of baked goods whether it be something as simple as cookies or as extravagant as a souffle. This is something I am fully prepared to fail at first, the only baked good I really make is cake and cookies and that isn’t very challenging. With my failures I hope to find some success and achievement from my trial and error experiences. No more baking out of a box I am ready to start the process of becoming amazing at making baked goods from scratch. I am tired of baked goods with a lot of calories but not the best flavor, I am ready for homemade baked goods that are worth all the calories.
I am pretty excited about this project, because for one I love baked goods. I also love learning new things and sharing them with others. Whether it be learning how to be an amazing baker and sharing what I make with family or sharing what I bake with friends at a get together. I do have one thing I am a little nervous about, which would be getting frustrated. At times when things get challenging I get frustrated and I am ready to give up. I am going to have to push through the frustration and the challenges that I have coming my way to become an amazing baker.
Overall I am extremely excited about this project. I love baked goods so why not learn to make them right? The only down side that I can think of is becoming amazing at a baking and watching my waistline increase. That being said I will most definitely need to have a lot of self control when becoming an amazing baker. Here is to an exciting new adventure!
