‘These past 3 weeks I’ve focused on my mind in a mind class I’m attending and I reflected on that. I pushed past that feeling of wanting to cry and that sick feeling of stress.. I thought to myself— am I really a sh***y mum because my cake failed? Nope. Am I sh** person because my batter turned to sh**? Nope. Is tomorrow a new day and I can sort it out then? Yep, that’s what I focused on! I went to bed knowing that today I would make a cake and Saylor’s party will be great for her!’
Sam goes on to say that after finding an amazing strawberry cake hack using a $4 Coles mud cake, she got on with the job of making a masterpiece for her little girl.
‘I had a look at this “mudcake hack” from Coles and came up with this!’ she revealed. ‘Normally I get a cold sore from the stress I put on myself but this cake was so easy and Saylor LOVED it.
‘Amazing things can come from catching my anxiety and not letting it win. I’m week 3 out of 10 in this challenge and I’ve already taken so much from Tribe (Sam’s gym on NSW’s Central Coast).
‘PS- how awesome is this fricken cake’
Awesome is the word, Sam - we couldn’t love it more! Well done to Sam for the amazing cake, and showing us that it’s not the cake that matters - but the time and love that goes into it!
