For Anna Kendrick, it’s baking that comes naturally to her. To Anna, the fact that baking is more of a challenge is what really excites her. She likes that it’s so precise and that you have to take your time to measure everything out so you get the recipe right. The fact that cooking isn’t as structured really makes her like baking more. She likes baking recipes that are really hands-on and that take time to make. The science of baking is what makes Anna happy, and we’d love to see her make some sweet treats.
