A tweet by Shannon Hale, an acclaimed author and a mother of four has gone viral on the internet after she asked netizens to share stories of when their cooking went wrong as her 9-year-old was heartbroken for “messing it up”. Not satisfied with the dish, Hale said on Twitter that her daughter was “in tears” and gave up on her dream of being a baker, but she wanted to let her young girl know that “mistakes happen”. And not being able to bake proficiently like an expert once, does not mean she cannot be a baker, Hale said. She then asked bakers from across the world to share a story to inspire her kid to try again, and explain to her that even experts made mistakes and it was a major learning experience. The bakers worldwide perched on Hale’s post and asked her to tell her daughter that “the only way to teach yourself to bake is to mess up along the way”.
My 9yo is in tears because she tried to bake something new and messed up. She thinks this means she can’t be a baker now. Would any bakers out there care to share times you messed up?— Shannon Hale (@haleshannon) April 19, 2020
