Celebrating Baking Imperfections
Another year has come which means toasting to another year of procrastibaking, being overly expressive while eating..and being bribed with good food.
As a teacher, one of the hardest lessons is not to be a perfectionist. There’s a fine line between giving everything your best, and feeling like a failure because it wasn’t spot on to the bullseye.
The same goes with baking. I always start out with a certain picture in my head. It never turns out that way. And so stress ensues. I realised the severity of this situation when chatting while cake decorating. In between actual conversation, I was muttering “you’re so ugly..” cursing the cake before I even finished!
Step one is – laugh it off!
Here’s a cake where I accidentally used castor sugar for the icing instead of icing sugar. Mhmm another texture dimension of gritty icing~
What are some of your face-palming baking fails? Flying icing sugar, baking soda instead of baking powder, destruction during cake transport, I hear ya. Share it down in the comments below!
