I baked 35 things!!! Technically, I even finished before September, and I only started June 18th when school got out. That’s 75 days, and 35 bakes. I’m pretty proud of myself, even though I defintely knew I was cabable of doing this when I started. I spent a lot of this summer just sitting in the kitchen in the weird zone I get in when I bake, as well as arguing with my parents on whether to bake something small and savory or an entire cake/batch of cupcakes. My favorite bakes were probably the 35th (cake), the strawberry shortcake, the croissants, and the mini muffins. Also, even though I didn’t really try for a lot of the photography some of the photos did come out really well.
This gallery thing includes the simple descriptions of each bake, and a link to a post or reel on my Instagram if you want to see more information! And before I start, I have to say thank you so so SO much for being a part of this community, it’s absolutely crazy that over 400 people care about me baking. Also, I feel really bad that I wasn’t able to make a summer recipe this year, but there will most defintely be a fall one, and after a bit of a break for back to school I’ll try to be just as active as I was this summer! I hope that this post gives you some baking inspiration, and of course if you want the recipes for any of these bakes just leave a comment (even though I don’t think anyone other than my mom has ever commented on here…) OKAY, lets just get into it, here’s a photo gallery of everything I baked this summer!!
