My Everest cake for 2018 was to work out every day for 365 days, no breaks, and definitely not missing a day. It was a tough bake but I put the final touches of icing on it on 31 December 2018.
Everest cakes come in all shapes, sizes, flavours and textures, but no matter the individual preferences they are all very big and important to the baker. So, no matter what your preference, here are the ingredients and cooking instructions for your Everest cake.
1 x fresh WHAT. I prefer a “WHAT” that I know will change my life for the better. A few years ago, it was a better relationship cake with my wife. I made a fantastic money cake a few years back, so much so, that we ate it all and needed to make another and another. You may choose a health Everest cake – like I did last year – or a 4 tier new qualification cake. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something that you can really get your teeth into. Your WHAT is very important.
1 x ripe WHY. A reason, a tangible reason to bake the cake. A payoff. A reward. Most rewards are tangible and physical but more important than rewards are the results that we get that are intangible. The things like; self-respect, being a person of your word, making a difference, self-like, self-love, self-pride, self-improvement. Niche said “If you know WHY, you will endure any how”.
365 x portions of never quit, never give up, never ring the bell attitudes.
30 dozen Mulligans (these are daily do-overs).
1 x accurate measuring system. I use coloured marbles in a clear glass vase so I can see them.
1 x action plan of activities that you must do every day.
If anything burns, (and it will) scrape off the darker bits, let it rest for 24 hrs and then place it back in the oven, and let it cook low and slow. If the burn is too bad – leave it to rest for longer and work on another part of the recipe until you can start again. Never stop cooking and never miss a day. Never. Ever.
This Everest cake works for all areas of your life. Love, relationships, your career, finances, fitness, spirituality, family and personal growth.
Here’s to many successful meals, cakes and deserts for 2019. And remember if you can’t stand the heat, buy a fan, put in an air conditioner, slow it down, but keep on cooking.
