This is so worth a post! For someone who have never failed badly at baking, failed big time today! And I almost cried. But I needed a spank definitely, for halving a recipe meant for a 29cm cake and used it to bake a 22 cm cake. Result was a miserably flat cake that crumbled at just a simple touch.
Miserably behind time (supposed to get the sponge ready before bringing the sticky little girl back), I went for a quick shop at NTUC and Phoon Huat. And quickly found a wonderful recipe online. And in case all things failed again, I bought a box of Betty Crocker premix, just in case 🙂
This was not the first-ever cake I have ever done (still trying to look for THAT chocolate mango cake that I baked ages ago), but I think it will be a long long while before I make another attempt to bake a full-sized cake.
