On November baking (part 2)

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.

    Every good baker has her share of kitchen fails. Don’t lose heart! (Also, always check the comments if you find recipes on blogs or websites, sometimes other people have tried recipes already and have suggestions of modifications to make it better…)
