2017 is just a few days away.
So what are your plans for the New Year, especially your cake business goals.
You may be thinking what does baking have to do with goals?
Well let me tell you, a lot.
Baking can help you with your goals and I will show you how.
I’m going to break down the process of baking a cake, and how you can apply that to your goals.
So lets get baking with goals.
Step 1 – Decisions
How can you bake a cake if you don’t know what cake you want to bake.
There are so many different cakes you can make. Such as:
- Fat Free
And so on.
It’s important you are clear about what type of cake you want to bake.
Why? Because the cake you bake will determine the ingredients that you need.
Make your goal(s) clear and precise. This will help you get to your desired results.
Step 2 – Get all your Ingredients
You need to make sure you have all the necessary ingredients.
You cannot skip this step. You’d be surprised at how many times I have gone to make a cake assuming I had the ingredients only to discover I’ve run out of baking powder.
When you know what is in your cupboard or store, you then know what you need to buy at the supermarket.
Once you have all your ingredients, then you can start baking.
Get all the information you need to make your goal achievable and attainable.
Step 3 – Follow the recipe
How do recipes come about? Recipes are the result of trial and error. Someone has gone to the effort to refine and experiment the recipe so you end up with a great cake,
So it’s vital that you read the recipe before you start baking.
Once you understand the recipe, start your creation. But trust in the recipe.
Follow the steps of your plan to get to your desired goal.
Step 4 – Bake
You’ve mixed together your ingredients and your batter is ready.
So now pour it into the Cake tins.
All your planning and preparation is now in action, and you are achieving your goal. Yay!
Step 5 – Rest
The timer has gone off, and now your cake is ready to come out of the oven.
But it’s still too hot to eat, so you need to allow it rest and cool down.
Take a moment to reflect on your journey.
Step 6 – Icing on the cake
Once the cake has cooled down, it’s time to ice it, if you want.
You may be completely satisfied with your goal and don’t need the ‘extra’s. But if you do want the icing on the cake then of course you’ll have to work for that too.
The icing doesn’t make the cake any less than what it is. It’s still a cake, just dressed up.
Step 7 – Enjoy your Cake
Your cake is now baked, it has icing or not.
So sit down and enjoy every last bite of your creation.
You made it, reflect on your journey and be proud you completed and achieved your goal.
Are you ready to finally start making serious money in your cake business, so that you can get more orders!
