My Procedure:Sugar Skulls

I love baking. Its a family tradition. I enjoy everything about it. The ending parts are the best. I think doing the procedure with someone is fun.  Baking is important to my family. It is important because baking earns us more money. It will be very important to my social life when I get older because it will be my way to get a few extra dollars.

I have been baking since I could walk… literally. My family has a baking/cooking business, which is named after my grandma. She says when she is done with the business it’s all mine. It would have been to my aunt but she didn’t choose the baking/cooking as her job. I am the main one that works with my grandma. Other family members help from time to time when we have big jobs to do.

Baking is a relaxing project for me. I sometimes do things on my own. The fun thing about baking is learning and experiencing different things  with the food. I am the best baker in my house. Yes, I said the best. I’m only because I practice more than the others. I take baking seriously because it has and always will be a part of my life.
