Welcome to this week’s video on creating great food in small kitchens, I’m delighted that you’ve joined me again! This week I faced an interesting challenge. I wanted to make a wedding cake as I have so many times in the past… only I downsized my cake pans and no longer have the professional kitchen to work in! So how do I make a great cake without all the stuff I think I “NEED!”? The truth is, what we think we need is often determined by what we are used to having – not on some authentic understanding of NEED. As soon as you change what you’re used to, that will change what you need. So going tiny is one of the best ways to find the liberation of not needing so much stuff!
Then you get in the middle of a potentially frustrating situation when you no longer have the STUFF… what then? I no longer have cake pans, so I could either borrow some (which I did) or rent some (it’s an option for some things) or I could find a different and creative approach. In this case, I baked thin layers of cake on large sheet pans and then trimmed them to the sizes I wanted. It was lots easier and there are no big pans to store in my Tiny House Foodie kitchen (or my actual 125 square foot tiny house for that matter). This is just an example of how you can find creative solutions to whatever situations come up in your tiny haven home. Simply get intentional about being creative and adaptable, and you’ll be fine.
Where there’s a will… there’s a way.
Oh, did you happen to notice in the video where I used Lemon Vitality Essential Oil from Young Living to flavor the icing? Seriously, that lemon buttercream was the BEST PART of the cake! If you’re interested in learning more about that and the other Young Living products I use in my tiny home and in the Tiny House Foodie kitchen check out one of my other projects: Anoint-Ed.com. Good things are happening over there and if you love simplicity, wellness, and value like I do… then you should pop on over and have a look around! XOXO
