The Gallery - Week 48 - Simple Pleasures

The simple pleasure
  • of combining ingredients to make a cake mix
  • of watching the mix transform magically before your eyes in the heat of the oven
  • of turning an ordinary cake into something special with icing and imagination in equal measure
  • of a job well done
  • of plunging a sharp knife into the heart of your creation to slice and serve
  • of noticing that it looks pretty good inside

and finally,
  • of  happy faces, consuming, enjoying, licking lips and chasing crumbs.

Simple pleasures indeed.
