Celebrating National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

My Favorite Baking Quotes

There are some things that only bakers understand. Like how the effort of spending HOURS making bread is totally worth it when you take it out of the oven and get that whiff of fresh baked goodness.

Or how stacking layers of cake like Jenga and frosting and decorating it is somehow super zen no matter what it looks like to an outsider. Baking is definitely a way of life and some quotes just illustrate that perfectly. As a big fan of words, baking, and all things pretty and Instagrammable, it only made sense that I would turn those quotes into posters. I alternate these as my phone...
