I NEVER BAKE BEFORE.
When hubby bought me an Oven, it's doesn't come for FREE. In fact, he challenged me to bake (even though he knew that NEVER in my 29 years old life did I EVER bake cakes nor cookies). Being ME, someone who hate being challenge, I started to watched baking videos from youtube. Gather all recipes that 'LOOK NICE' and downloaded videos on baking.
Well, it was so scary at first. The pressure of wanting to be so called 'SUCCESS ON FIRST ATTEMPT' and the stressed of wanting to 'IMPRESS'. Buy heyyyyy..... I DID IT, my very first attempt baking Chocolate cakes was indeed a BIG (for me) success and most of all, HE IMPRESSED!!
My second attempt was a DISASTER. This time, I tried to baked cupcakes.. From out of 18 cupcakes, only 2 'SURVIVED', the rest became 'VOLCANOES' (those who bakes knows exactly what I'm talking about.) I have to admit that at that moment, I almost gave up especially when hubby keep on making fun and laugh after he saw the outcome! Well, I did stop baking for a while (almost 2 weeks).
After the cupcakes TRAGEDY, I managed to baked again. This time.... Everything was fine..
So, these are my cakes & cupcakes......
|Chocolate Moist Cake with Cream Cheese Topping (1st attempt)|
|The Only Survived Chocolate Cupcake (2nd Attempt)|
So, after the 7th attempt, I STOP for a while. It's not because I'd finally succeed with the challenge, it just that 'I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF CAKES'. How ironic, isn't it?
