I love Cake Newbs! I was one!! It distresses me when folks say they won't Post because they are intimidated by other's work. I wanted to Share a few jewels with you lovely folks this morning. First is the "10,000 Hour Rule" (link below) - the idea that if you spend 10,000 hrs you will become Master-Level Skilled at WHATEVER you choose. The Math is below for you geeks like me who want to see it, but it works out to 4hrs a day for 6.8 years.
Second Share is the pic above, of the first cake I actually to a pic of (about a year in!!!) in 2008 - right next to my most recent Favorite Love, Pegacorn Launch, 2015. EXACTLY 7 years....
I mean to inspire you. I beg you not to feel scared or discouraged by other's successes, or that we love to Share them with you. Use us to find your thrill, then turn off the computer and hit the sugar. It is within you, I promise. And if you, in your mastery of your skill, choose to come back and Share so that others may find their thrill, the circle continues. HUGE Thanks and Love out to my personal cake heroes Karen Portaleo, Cake Artist, Mike McCarey of Mike's Amazing Cakes, Bronwen Webber of Frosted Art Bakery & Studio, Michelle Christian of MichelleSugarArt. I could never have done it without your Sharing and Inspiration. Stay Sweet All XXOO, Heather at Art2Eat Cakes
"Complexity and the 10,000 Hour Rule"
Here's the Math: 10,000hrs/365days per year=27.4years/4hrs a day= 6.8yrs
