It’s certified – I have shitty cake recipes. Or rather, insufficient cake recipes.
Yesterday’s two six-inch cakes turned out to be dry and peaked – bad sign of baking really. They weren’t burnt, thankgawd (I’m not thattt bad, k?), but still…I hate being imperfect at this! My dogs love the cake though; I can’t take that as a compliment somehow. Geh.
Anyway, I’ve been so busy stocking up on everything else – meats, vegs and cookies & slices – that I completely forgot to get a simple yet effective recipe book solely for cakes alone! So note to self: I need to purchase those mini cookbooks on just cakes alone, particularly these two titles.
In the meantime, thankgawd for measuring cups, a mixer and the buttercream frosting recipe!
