I love cake, but it's not just the end product that I enjoy (though it's certainly a bonus!) It's the process of taking a few boring ingredients (have you ever tried flour? BLEURGH!) and making it into something that tastes lovely. I also like licking the bowl, even though it's extremely undignified.
I wouldn't say that I'm the most creative baker by any means, I mostly make cupcakes with buttercream icing, it's hardly imaginative or difficult. But there's still a sense of achievement at the end of it all, especially when someone (usually my mum) says how nice they are.
Despite my uncreativity, I do have several baking books, including:
Next - I <3 Cupcakes
1 recipe 50 muffins
1 recipe 50 cakes
1 recipe 50 cookies
I have made some of these recipes (the fudge cupcakes in the Next book were divine) and I plan to do some more baking this easter - Creme egg cupcakes anyone?
I like to take photos of the end product too.
I guess we'll C you tomorrow!
