I'm a purest when it comes to cooking. I come from northern Ohio where Maple syrup is produced so the thick gooey syrup stuff wall street tries to market as syrup doesn't fly with me. I also love "TRUE" Belgian waffles. I also love to bake cakes. I love them so much I started creating and selling them
(http://BabyCakesByOrangeman.com). I created a Key Lime cake with a Key Lime Butter glaze that is so good it's probably illegal in some states!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes. I love to "create" new ideas for cakes. I love the "science" of baking. I guess that's why I love the show "Good Eats" with Alton Brown. My website (http://BabyCakesByOrangeman.com) has the BEST Key Lime cake EVER. It took me 16 months to develop the recipe. I also just created a Chocolate Raspberry Supreme cake that is to LIVE for!
My cooking triumphs
Creating one of the first Key Lime cakes (March of 2007). It took me 16 months to perfect it and now I am seeing Key Lime cakes popping up everywhere.
My cooking tragedies
Never ice a Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting before the cake has properly cooled...especially if it's three layers sitting on the top shelf inside a refrigerator!
