College student who just likes to bake and cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love making cookies and cakes from scratch. I've tried cheesecake a few times cause I just love cheesecake, but they don't turn out so well.
My cooking triumphs
I'm especially proud of this white cake I made with an almost custard filling topped with strawberries that I made for our end of the year party at my job. It had a fondant sculpted Bobcat that my friend made on top of it. I'm really proud that the cake held despite the weight of the Bobcat.
My cooking tragedies
I was making frosting for a lemon cake for my friend's birthday before she came home. I had made one batch of frosting, but it turned out not to be enough. With not enough ingredients and not enough time, I rushed a frosting batch that went crazy. It initially started out watery, so I tried adding more powdered sugar, only making it lose it's original flavor, not making it thick enough for frosting. I then tried putting it on the stove in hopes it might get thicker with heat; also a failure. Finally, I tried to add flour, which eventually turned the frosting into a solid block stuck to a saucepan.
