This week I was so excited to learn that I landed a new social media consultant job. Unfortunately, that excitement was immediately replaced with stress when I got into my car and it wouldn’t start. Car troubles suck! Let’s hope that my husband can fix the car and my salary from the new job will not go straight to a new car payment! We have been car payment free for about 4 years and I love it!
When I am stressed out I turn to baking. I find that late night baking or candy making is incredibly therapeutic. I also find that Christmas music is very uplifting too. Yes, I am one of those people that light Christmas scented candles and turn on xmas music beginning in August. I blame my mother.
So anyway, on this particular stressful night, this Pumpkin Bundt Cake happened. The smells of pumpkin, chocolate and cinnamon baking magically calmed me. It was delicious too! The Plugrá European-Style Butter browned beautifully creating a nuttiness in the cake. Topped with ganache and studded with chocolate chips, the cake was perfect and just what I needed.
If you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed you should try putting on some good music and baking (this time with no kids around). It really helps!
