It is true that I am no Bakerella-definately not, but I would have to say I love baking 300% more than I like cooking. Probably because cooking is a necessity while baking is a luxury.
This probably goes hand in hand with the "I love petting and riding the pony, but mucking the stall! No way."
Not that I've ever had a pony. But if you had ever seen my goliath of a cat....close enough.
Anyways. I LOVE baking. I really like making really GOOD tasting baked goods. And I adore making ones that look pretty too. Probably why alot of my Christmas/Birthday presents have been cake decorating ones. For fondant none the less.
I do believe the conversation (in my head, of course,) went something like this:
Me: Hmm. Fondant. Looks like playdough...or that magic foam stuff
Me after touching it: Um.. definately not playdough..more waxy.
Me after tasing it: EWWWWWWwwww. It tastes like Feet! (FRIENDS reference anyone?)
Me after playing with it: Oh! Well this is nice. It's going to look Beautiful!
I made one cake, then ran out of fondant, the money to buy more, and the will to learn how to make my own.
On to greater things, right?
Anyways, that was all so I could say, that I had to bake this weekend for our college department's lunch on Sunday, and I made Bakerella's peanut butter cookies, and my own version of cupcakes w/ oreos. Very yum.
