Happy new year!

I believe in new beginnings. A new year, new ways, new skills and techniques, new products, new customers. New hairdo and a new dress. New is fresh, a change from the old. A movement as opposed to standing still. Whether it is a new job or a new pair of shoes.

Those of you who know me a little bit, might wonder what this is all about. Really I am more the traditional type who likes to stick with the known and safe, staying within my comfort zone whenever possible. So maybe it’s the age? Or the weather? I don’t now and it doesn’t matter. I have decided that the blog will be in English from now on. Although I consider my Dutch to be more or less fluent after 22 years in The Netherlands (did I just say 22 years..?); writing in Dutch was never my favourite. It just doesn’t come to me as easily as I would like. And as my always loyal and very honest text editor, my mother in law, is no longer able to edit my texts, I am just not so comfortable writing in Dutch anymore. In addition, I felt really sorry for those of my readers who use Google translate to follow the blog; they just never quite understood what I was talking about.

The drip cakes are also new to my bakery and they have come to stay. A drip cake can be decorated in so many different ways, there are no limits. I love making these cakes! In addition, I will be adding French macarons to the assortment shortly. Stay tuned to see when and what!

I have decided to make 2017 a year to learn new skills. Cake decoration and techniques will be the first focus. Remember the movie Julie & Julia? With Meryl Streep (yes, that overrated actor) as Julia Child who became an American celebrity chef after her graduation at the world famous Le Cordon Bleu? The movie made a deep impression on me; Le Cordon Bleu was en still is the top of the culinary world. And so I signed up for a course. At Le Cordon Bleu in London. For 10 days I will be surrounded by world-class chefs and bakers. And I will learn from them. I still can’t believe it. I am hoping to return with a suitcase filled with new techniques, new skills and new ideas. I’ll keep you posted.

Happy new year!
