When I started baking, I had Bake Happy to get me through recipes and substitutions of ingredients that weren’t available in the local market. Would you believe I made (and still make) my red velvet cupcakes with Yakult?
While Aiko solved my newbie questions, I still had a problem. Our oven wasn’t working. Who in the right mind would think about baking and not have an oven, right? But what do they say? “When in doubt, Google?”
I am now into baking! I’ve recently found out that talent of mine. Which my parents use now as a joke, “Dapat nag-Culinary ka na lang eh.” I’m skillful like that. Bwahahaha!
I’ve tried 4 cupcakes (Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting, Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Ganache, Vanilla Cupcake, Rainbow Vanilla Cupcake) and 2 cookies (Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies, Nutella and Peanut Butter cookies.)
I never thought I would enjoy doing this. I used to only buy ready mixes from the supermarket and now I already know the ingredients used to make one.
I would really want to have an oven. I only use our convection turbo for it. I didn’t know there were cheap ovens. I’m now waiting for Ate to give in and buy it for me. Hehe.
Meanwhile, saw these books in FullyBooked and I wish they’re cheaper!!
So there you go. I just ha to share this!
I wrote this last night before going to sleep but I ended up falling asleep first. Haha!
