    Welcome to the second installment of the ABCs of Making! Today we're going to cover the most delicious way to learn new things: baking.

    Baking may be something you wouldn't really consider making, but it absolutely is! More of a science than an art, baking relies heavily on measuring and mixing ingredients properly and achieving the right chemical reactions.

    Baking is a great way to learn how to be more organized and clean while working, how to pay attention to details, and how to problem solve!
