Baking is one of the things I most like to do in the world. Most of the time I find it therapeudic to concentrate on creating the next masterpiece, although I have to admit that I find it more enjoyable to do when I have no pressure (like a birthday party) on, and I’m doing it just because it’s fun. Over the years my husband and I have created some amazing cakes for our family and while they may not be at a professional level, they have been loved by all who have seen and tasted them.
Add to that the fact that there really is nothing nicer than the smell of home cooking throughout the house, and you have a recipe for Happy Times.
Over the years, I have definately found my favourite recipes that I like to make and then I start playing with adapting them for exactly what I want at the time. I have been attempting new but not always improved ways of doing things, some with amazing results, and some with not so amazing ones, and it’s all been a learning curb. But at least I know that no matter what it looks like, it’s still going to taste great.
One of the newer things I’ve been having a play with, is the actual decorating of the various cakes, cupcakes, slices etc. I’d like to say that over the last year or two, I have perfected my decorating skills, but, well lets just say I’m still learning……It’s actually my husband that is the creative genius and him that has the patience when mine runs out
That’s where Dr.Oetker comes in.
