‘Tis the season to pull out all those amazing holiday baking recipes you’ve saved over the last few months and hit the kitchen. And, as you might’ve guessed, we have a few thoughts about how this typically goes.
Step 1: Look through the 297 recipes you saved on Pinterest and Facebook.

Step 2: Get very hungry thinking about what you’re going to make.

Step 3: Have a snack. You’re gonna need your strength!

via GIPHY
Step 4: Become secure in the knowledge that you’re going to make the greatest holiday treat of all time.

via GIPHY
Step 5: Make a grocery list, because of course you don’t have all the ingredients you need. Check it twice if you feel so moved.

via GIPHY
Step 6: Hit the grocery store and buy everything you need … plus, of course, a few more snacks. Healthy ones, though, right?

Step 7: Get home, prepare your ingredients — and yourself.

via GIPHY
Step 8: It’s go time!

via GIPHY
Step 9: Become cocky because, obviously, you’ve totally got this. You are a holiday baking champion. Your last name should be baker and you should go everywhere dusted with flour indicating your prowess in the kitchen.

Step 10: Wait. That … doesn’t look like the picture in the recipe.

via GIPHY
Step 11: Gently refuse any offers to fix it. There’s no room for critics in your kitchen.

via GIPHY
Step 12: Acknowledge that this isn’t going quite as planned … but you can salvage it. You really can.

Step 13: Well, golly, maybe baking for everyone you’ll be seeing over the next few days wasn’t your best idea. This seems rather excessive.

via GIPHY
Step 14: You’ve done your best. It’s time to let the oven do the rest.

via GIPHY
Step 15: Now, we wait.

via GIPHY
Step 16: Yes! Hooray! It’s done!

Step 17: But you’re not. Time for the finishing touches … which almost certainly will be every bit as easy as those videos make them look.

via GIPHY
Step 18: Gotta make it Instagrammable, right? Lighting, check. Tree, got it. Boomerang that shit!

via GIPHY
Perfect.
Step 19: Practice your modest face (because everyone is gonna compliment the hell out of you, you baking goddess, you), then deliver your baked treasures.

via GIPHY
Step 20: Get home and realize you gave all the goodies away — and nothing is left for you.

via GIPHY
Step 21: Start looking for another recipe to master, and this time, set aside some for yourself!
