I don’t think that it is any secret but I love to cook. But baking, well baking and I don’t really get long.
Some people might wonder if there is a difference between the two and there is. See cooking is just taking a bunch of random things a throwing them in a pan. Beautiful things then happen in that pan and you have something good to eat. But baking, well that takes patience and measuring and being exact. I don’t like that. It is just not my cup of tea.
And there is also the fact that I suck at baking.
I tried to make a chocolate with a nice caramel butter cream but apparently the cream was too creamy or something because the top layer slid off.
So I thought that I would stick to something a little more simple. Next I tried a plain boxed yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I guess you are suppose to wait for the cake to cool completely before frosting or it will not go well.
After these mess, I have given up. I know when I am beaten. I am just not a baker.
Never will be.
But thankfully there is someone else in our house that is.
Jeff has a real talent for making and decorating cakes.
