so after my last post, i couldn’t wait to bake my first cake (on my own) and bought all the ingredients i needed to make the simplest butter cake recipe  i could find. it wasn’t so hard but i did make a mess >.< i also misread the recipe and mixed it wrongly but manage to still mix it all together in the end. hehehe

just imagine turning on the mixer when the flour is all loose… *poof* hahaha i had to mix it in the sink coz it was getting everywhere!! eventually everything was nice and fluffy and i poured it into the baking can and put it in the oven. all done,  so proud.. 😀 the receipe said an hour… but checking after 50 mins it was almost burnt so i took it out and let it cool.

i have to say for my first try not bad lah… people say that baking isn’t so hard and i guess they are right. the cake did turn out ok, it was moist inside but D said not sweet enough. well, it’s still edible and if you’re not too much of a sweet tooth then it’s a-ok.

i took the recipe off taste. click if you wanna have a look at the recipe…. hmmmm what shall i attempt to bake next??

junior masterchef is showing channel 10 right now and man… can those kids cook. while we were waiting for our pies and creamy potato bake in the oven, our mouths were water just watching the dishes they were making. booo… my dinner didn’t look as great as theirs -_- look at that, it was the first attempt for some of them too. i don’t even know where to start if i was given duck. FAIL

later that night, i caught part of the movie julie & julia yesterday and learnt some new stuff about cooking. the movie was just a tad slow but i loved the quirky Julia Child. the one thing that got me and D going “ohhhhhhhh” was that we are meant to dry out meat before cooking or it won’t brown right. you learn something new everyday!

after watching these programs, i too wanna cook >.< i am going to attempt baking for the very first time. and since D likes butter cakes… that’s what i’m gonna start with and also… that one doesn’t look toooooo difficult. *fingers crossed* if it doesn’t turn out, you won’t get a picture. hahahaha
