For many people that may classify themselves as homemaker types, this could mean that you are merely dreaming about baking because you already do it so much. Repetition of things that you do consistently in your daily life will lead to dreaming about them. This is a fact that we all know to be true. So therefore if you have a dream in which you are baking it may just be because it is something that you are familiar with, since you do it on a daily basis. This is the lowest level of dream interpretation though.
If you are a woman and dreaming about baking then this also has a relation to how you view your own femininity. Many people get caught up in the feminist movement, becoming something of a militant feminist. In that role, stereotypically and observationally speaking many women find themselves unable to really embrace the stereotypically feminine elements that are also a part of being feminine. As sad as it is to stereotype an entire gender, some of the things that we see as being stereotypically feminine are simply things that people like doing sometimes. Baking is a good example of this. Though women are historically seen as being confined to the kitchens and unable to do anything out of the home besides shopping and buying more supplies to sustain their cooking, sometimes it is just fun to cook in this day and age. Just because you want to cook doesn’t mean you are betraying some interpretation of womanhood, or conforming to a set gender role, sometimes it just means you are baking. Therefore a dream like this might suggest that you really do just want to spend a little bit more time baking and less time pursuing other things.
A dream like this could also be a message to yourself regarding embracing your femininity. Even if it is somewhat of a stereotypical image, because this is one that we associate with womanhood, it is one that still gets a lot of attention. Therefore if you dream fairly often about baking it may just be a message you to yourself about being more feminine and trying to reach some more of those parts of yourself that are not as exposed to the world. Everyone has a feminine side, even men, and again, this does not mean that just because you are baking, you are betraying women; sometimes it is just fun to prepare food.
If you are a man and you are dreaming that you are baking, this can also function as a message to yourself to let out your femininity a bit. People need not confine themselves to the roles that society set them out to conform to. We now know that people are not so rigid in their formation and can display a variety of different feelings and emotions related to the human condition. Humans possess both male and female qualities no matter what the gender and it is necessary for self expression to be able to let out both of those sides no matter what your gender. A dream of baking is a reminder of that.
