I am a huge fan of baking. Baked goods don't always last long enough around my husband to ever get to the decorating stage.

I love the whole process but i think the best part is seeing the happy faces and giving my friends and family my love filled goodies, that's heaven!

October 9 | Unregistered Commenterstacysings

I've never heard of bake it pretty! I'll have to go check it out. My favourite part of making a cake is baking because I don't think I'm very good at decorating and it just stresses me out!

October 9 | Unregistered Commentereatme_delicious

Baking!! It lets me forget whatever else may be on my mind that day and focus on the sweetness :-)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterStormie

I like them both for different reasons. Baking is therapy for me. Decorating is my creative outlet. But my absolute favorite part is in the final moments of decorating when you finally put everything together, I call my husband in to take a look for me, and the look on his face tells me if I did a good job or not. That's priceless!

I definitely prefer the baking part. I'm just not patient or creative enough for much decorating. :)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterBrittany

I have to say the baking. There is something therapeutic about the measuring and mixing everything in just the right order that I love. Oh, and I also love licking the bowl after :)

I prefer the baking part. The decorating never turns out quite the way I see it in my mind but I keep on trying.

I'm still trying to perfect both my baking & decorating skills, but as between the two, decorating is much more fun because you have instant gratification as opposed to waiting for your delicious concoction to turn into a cake, cupcake, etc...

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterShunta

Definitely Decorating!

October 9 | Unregistered Commenternorwichnuts

Decorating is the best-making the cake to fit the recipient is so much fun!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterPage R

My favorite part is baking. I especially love watching them puff up in the oven. I think it's the anticipation.

October 9 | Unregistered Commentervschaaf_family

I love both! I've found myself more into complex baking and simple decorating here recently, though. And cupcakes are my latest obsession.

October 9 | Unregistered Commenter~ Kristie

Decorating is the best part!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterC

I enjoy baking more because I'm better at it. But the kids and I take some joy in decorating badly!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterChrisBL

Decorating!! Probably because I am better at that part, to be honest. I just started working with fondant this summer and have tried a lot of different things, but I still have to be true to my baking recipes for fear that I'll mess them up.

October 9 | Unregistered Commenterkaytee

Although decorating is always fun, I love the baking. It is just such peaceful activity.


October 9 | Unregistered CommenterCecily

baking...such a stress reliever!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterCaitlin

Tough question!! I actually only decorate for special occasions. I just made a cannibal cake for my daughter's birthday, it was a hit. While I enjoy decorating, I actually like baking better than decorating.

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

baking is certainly my favorite part! I actually find it theraputic

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterLiese

As an accomplished cake artist (not braggin', just sayin') you'd think it would be the decorating. Though I love decorating a LOT, I get way more satisfaction out of seeing the smile that comes after that first bite. Kind of like my friends - if they're pretty on the outside, great. Still not as important as what's on the inside!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterAudrey

Baking is for sure my favorite part--that's the therapeutic aspect of being in the kitchen. My perfectionist tendancies come out with vengence when decorating, and it can become stressful and tedious. If only I could decorate first, THEN bake--it would start with the stress, and end with the therapy!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterAllie

Decorating the cake is the most fun because it's a technique I haven't quite mastered.

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterChristina

For me, it's definitely the decorating part... I love seeing where my creativity will take me... and the more I decorate, the better, and more creative, I get. :)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterMrs.R

My favorite part is baking. It's so therapeutic and nothing beats the satisfaction of putting your creation into the oven!
