Baby Steps

Posted on February 27th, 2006

Well, it turns out that today is significant for another reason: for the first time in my life, I baked*!

I took my first baby step in becoming a more well-rounded cook (having already gotten the jist of some appetizers and a bunch of entrees) and ventured into the realm of desserts. This is a much more dangerous land, where precision and timing play are kings. And experimentation, my favourite, is a risky proposition.

My first victim were cupcakes. Delicious, moist cupcakes. Kat had made them before and they were killer and I just had to try it out! So, after an initial onset of paranoia (i.e. making sure that all of the right things were combined in the right proportions), I stuck two batches in the oven and hoped that it would behave for me (as the oven has been known to randomly nuke everything). It was a good thing that I checked up on them early because they were done quite a bit sooner than I had expected!

“They worked!” Kat exclaimed, after she had walked off with one. Victory is mine!

* And by baked, I mean mixed a bunch of stuff together (some of which came out of a box) under the careful supervision of Kat, without whom there would have been some serious issues. Thanks, KFro! 😀

    They’re so tasty!

    Indeed, you should be making that comment to Kat.. in fact, you should do that on her journal right now!!

    the trick with that oven is that it’s ALWAYS 100 degrees too hot. Adjust is 100 degrees less and your times should work out to match therecipes. At least that’s what I discovered worked for me (after many MANY trials and ERRORS!)

    Heya Jazz!

    I remember that little tip that you left me when I first moved in and it has since proved invaluable to Kat (who has done the lion’s share of the baking around these parts). Well, I guess Keith and I have had our little frozen goodies to prepare, too, but…

    Anyhow, it was good to see you again! I know it must not have seemed like it since I was anti-huggy but you must remember that I’m just like that sometimes 😮 Next time you come, though, do give us some notice!!
