A year after baking cupcakes for the very first time, I decided it was time to have a go at a full-sized cake. Having used Dan’s sister’s birthday as a reason for baking for the very first time, I thought the occasion, a year on, called for a bigger and better one!
Since my first attempt at baking cupcakes, I have becoming something of an “expert”. I have experimented with fillings and toppings and learnt that buttercream icing is actually incredibly easy to make (and I definitely could have done thathere!) However, as that is all I could do, that is all I ever baked – sticking to what I know, for fear of stepping out of my comfort zone and messing it up. However, after baking them on countless occasions I started to get bored and decided I needed a new challenge.
Having spent very little of my 26 years in a kitchen, I decided it was time to learn my way around one. Especially now I am attempting to be an adult and finally have my own, I really should probably at least try to use it.
