About this Cook
I did not like baking and cooking growing up. Recently, I have found out that I love it, but I am also really good at it! (Just ask my "victim"!) I hear all the time I should open my own bakery...(and when I do I am going to put it right next to the gym and call it Planet Fatness! Hee hee)
My favorite things to cook
Desserts. Nuff said.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We really like to grill and experiment with sauces and toppings.
My cooking triumphs
My frostings! I can make any kind of frosting or cupcake you can dream up.
My cooking tragedies
I seem to have a real problem with some of the cake recipes on here. I follow them to the letter. Measure twice, cut once as they say... Its especially frustrating when other reviewers love a recipe that didn't work for me or wasn't satisfactory in some way.

Simple White Cake
I tried this several times thinking I messed it up, I tried to add extra milk like some reviewers suggested. This recipe is easy, but the cake is just too dense and dry for my taste. In the end after several batches I decided to just go with a boxed mix, cheaper, moister, and less time consuming and this recipe only yielded about 12 cupcakes for me.

Pound Cake I
I followed the directions exactly because I was giving it as a present. Seems kind of dry and bland...not very special at all. I had high hopes because of the high star rating, but was disappointed.

Vanilla Glaze
This is a really good glaze...however the milk is way off! I added a little at a time to get the right consistency. It sets quick too. LOVED IT.
