I love both, but I'd probably love decorating more if I was better at it. I'm such a perfectionist.

Decorating is the best! I can't wait for my 8-month old daughter to be old enough to help!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterKristie

I enjoy decorating just slightly more than baking.

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterMarnie

Decorating - I never know what will happen. Sometimes super cute, sometimes... not so much!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterSitStayEat

Baking is relaxing - just zone out of reality and into sweet cloud 9. Decorating is more fun, time to get creative!

I like both, but I love the initial part of baking the very best- coming up with or finding a recipe, getting the ingredients organized. But I adore the whole process, beginning to end!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Baking for me- I'm too impatient to decorate most of the time, and a poorly baked item can be horrible even with the best decorations! I'd rather have a fantastic-tasting ugly cake any day :-)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterK

Decorating, of course! For me, the baking barely takes 2 minutes (in terms of whipping up a batter) so it hardly even counts a step.

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterHannah

I decorate for a living, so baking is kind of a fun treat when I do it. But decorating is great too! I can barely choose! So, uh, baking when I'm at home, decorating at work.

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterEmmy

Decorating for sure, even though I'm not very good at it!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterJackie Legg

Decorating is my favorite! That is the fun part :-)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterAmber

Baking is most fun for me. I love playing mad scientist with ingredients!

October 9 | Unregistered Commenteremileee

Decorating is the best part...wish I was better at it!!!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterJean Badgley

The baking. My baked goods usually don't last long enough for me to decorate them. Or I'm too tired to decorate, I just want to eat it!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterLynnetta

Great question! As much as I love the creativity that decorating involves, I think baking wins by a smidgen. It's a relaxing and cathartic experience for me... and you get to taste-test along the way! :)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Decorating! I get to give whatever I'm making some personality!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterHilary

I love to bake and decorate. I started doing this back in February of this year. I have fallen in love. I love the baking because you take many different parts to make a delicious layer. Then there is decorating I love to take the different ingredients to create the icing to finish my masterpiece. I love it all. It is hard to decide. I take this time as my time. I love doing all of it as it is a stress reliver for me.

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterPallie Pannell

Although I love the decorating part, that can be a little stressful, how do I decorate, keeping my hand still and steady, getting the right mixture, ect. I completing the decorating and getting that final result but I love the cooking part the most. When im mixing up all the pieces and parts of the mixture my head is totally into the baking, not school, not family, not problems, no stress. Baking is my therapy because it forces me to focus on just the baking, i love it!

October 9 | Unregistered Commenterblondiagw15

The baking is my favorite part :)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterCara

You forgot the most important option: Eating it! That's the most fun part, or watching other people eat it and enjoying good food together!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterApril

Oh, the decorating! In fact, I have a 50th anniversary cake due on Sunday, and I dread even thinking about having to bake it.

I'm lucky, because I love decorating and my mom loves baking!! So we make a good team!! =)

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterAnelise

Baking, certainly.

But if this was a more open ended question - feeding the goods to people and watching thier reactions!

October 9 | Unregistered CommenterAmmy Lea

Baking is my favorite part because I love making messes and it's so relaxing. I enjoy decorating as well, but find my myself frustrated sometimes since my decorating skills can use some improvements. All the Bake it Pretty products make me want to decorate more!
