This post should be coming to you through the mysterious technological wonder that is ‘post scheduling’ – I’ve never tried it before, so we’ll see whether it works or not. But if you’re reading this then obviously it did. Huzzah!
So, November baking has been a mixed bag.
Tablet, which I talked about on Saturday was troublesome. I made it. It didn’t set. I made it again. It didn’t set again. I made for the third time. It set. That’s a frustrating amount of failures, but it is awesome so probably worth it.
1 – nil.
Buttery Citrus Cake was a new recipe for me, and I was pretty excited about it (mostly because the candied citrus slices seemed like fun). However, it was, sadly, somewhat of a disaster. It’s supposed to take 1 hour 10 minutes to cook. I had it in for 2 hours and it was still wet in the middle. What’s a girl supposed to do? Fail.
1 – 1.
Cappuccino Cupcakes also a new recipe, but cupcakes – so not really possible to get wrong. I made two batches and then my sweet flatmate, Emma, produced a piping bag and helped with the icing. They look awesome, here’s to hoping they taste so too.
2 – 1.
Not an overwhelming failure. Not a runaway success.
Cue obligatory slideshow showing every stage of the baking process:
In summary: 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.
