So I baked a cake for Jamie’s birthday yesterday. It didn’t go very well. I did not miss my calling as a baker! I’m going to have to practice a lot more before I can send cake anywhere with Babyice!
Step by step how it went:
After this things started going pear shaped….
Although I managed to cover up the scones cake pretty well…it doesn’t taste great. It’s dense and heavy. I have a feeling I somehow messed up converting grams to millilitres (I don’t have a kitchen scale). Luckily the icing tastes great and an entire tin of caramel seem to compensate for the actual cake part. Eish.
And in direct contrast to my epic baking fail, Angel also took the time and made the effort to bake for Jamie’s birthday. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Angel. I am honoured that you baked for her (Angel did this without knowing that I decided to honour Jamie by baking for her) and deeply touched that you did this for her and for me.
The cupcakes (I am completely outdone. Angel is, however, a pro!)
Thank you to everyone who sent messages of support and poured out their love on this difficult day. I coped surprisingly well and cried a lot less than I anticipated. Love you all!
