1st Baking Experience

20 OCT 2009: Baked my 1st cake over the weekend. Friends advised me to start with the basic butter cake, but I baked a marble cake instead. With a baking book beside me, it didn’t take me too long to prepare all the ingredients. While the whole experience itself wasn’t as tough as expected that it took me less than an hour to get it done. Baked the mixture in my new oven at 180C for 40 minutes, and the cake turned out a little burnt on 1 side. Well, I would say it looked and tasted “Not bad” for a 1st time baker me.

My next target will be egg tart!!!



I’ll be flying off tomorrow (21 OCT 2009) for a week holiday vacation. It’ll be a 7++ hours of flight to the South. Till we meet again, wish you all a wonderful week ahead.

And guess what, this is my 100th posting!!!! Hooray!!!!!

congrats on the first time and 100th :) such a lovely cake kekeee
its so much fun to bake, too bad nowadays im too busy *cough cough* no more baking liao.
it takes sometimes to learn abt the temperature and timing of ur oven, as the temperature mentioned in the cook book might not suit ur oven setting, once u have master it, the cake wont burn nor shrink after cooling kekeeee :)
