Hi Guys, here is Day 2 of the Vanilla Cupcake Challenge. I hope you enjoy the video!
So Fridays are the day I always work, which can be slightly annoying. Well because you guys are like T.G.I.F, and I’m like I need Saturday right now! It is really not that bad. I just, well I think we all get the feeling of not wanting to go to work. I would much prefer to stay in my comfy bed!!! So off to my little job.
So today being a Friday, I went off to work, in a my actually pretty cool workplace, the problem is that it is about an hour by train! I finally made it in, and that’s when the feeling of I don’t want work kinda leaves and I’m all of sudden happy to do the job. My job is also one of the coolest jobs for a 16 year old, I basically spend my day icing cakes, and who wouldn’t want to do that. I could ice cakes for ages and ages, and when I get bored of one, all I have to do is stick that one in freezer to chill, and I can start another. See it’s a pretty cool thing to do. Also as the place I ice cakes for, does lots and lots, there is always plenty of ganache and buttercream, and you never have not enough!
So today’s tasks, at my nearly dream job, was to ice 5 different kinds of cake, which eventually equaled to me icing 12 of them! Yep 12 cakes, lets just say that got me though my whole day and more. The cakes I iced today were mainly chocolate based, but I did do a few red velvets too. I really wish I had some pictures, because now that I have been doing it for a few weeks, they actually look really good and professional. My mentor-supervisor-personmbob is incredible to watch, and today she told me my red velvets were beautiful, I was extremely happy. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face, and to be honest with you, I’m still smiling now too.
So my day in life of Assistant Pastry Cook is pretty good life, don’t you think
A different video, that was promised for the Facebook peeps.
An afternoon where I’m not baking but instead having some downtime in the pool!

Christmas time is coming to an end again, it’s always so sad, I wish it was here all the time. There is such a special feeling you get at this time, that brings the best out of people. I am also glad that Christmas is over this year too, as it was so busy and all. If you would like to know why you should read Christmas time and Cake! I am hoping for next year to be maybe not as busy, but we will just have to see.
I really want to tell you all what I got for Christmas, which is going to make my videos even better. I got a CAMERA!!! An actual video camera, which is even waterproof, not that baking and water really mix unless its to make cake batter!. I got a Sony HDR-AS50 Action Camera, which is so incredibly small, but it takes such good videos. I’m looking forward to making you some more baking videos of all the different things that I love to eat. That means that you can eat them too! I got lots of bits and bobs too, which are pretty useful and will star in feature videos or blog posts. Christmas brings so many good things for everyone, and I hope the new year will too.
New Year Plans
My plans for the new year, aren’t too huge, I just really want to get out there with my cupcakes and for more people to know. I want to feel more confident talking about my own blog and YouTube channel. Which means even more people can see and understand what I love to do. I would love for my cakes and cupcakes to be talked about by all, not just my friends and family, and that they all come back to here or to my YouTube channel MissLozzyBeth. This is definitely going to take time, I understand that, but I’m willing to wait as I really love writing and creating videos about cakes and baking, its feels like my reason for living. I just get that at home feeling when I’m in the kitchen and baking, like it is where I belong. I hope I can bake for a long time long after this Christmas and 2017.
Happy New Year
Lots of Love
Miss Lozzy Beth
Christmas and cake go together like peanut butter and jelly, there is always at least something sweet at Christmas. My time before Christmas this year was extremely busy with cake, as somehow everyone is born in the leading months. I have planned so many cakes, […]
