I have an addiction- it’s called Pinterest. Some days/ weeks I tell myself i can’t ‘pin’ anything new until I’ve tried to do/ make a few of my already pinned pins. Why do I do this? Because I think I like to torture myself.
This past week I tried to make a cake with my friend Taylor. It took 2 days. Note: if your friend doesn’t have a standing mixer, a flour sifter, a scale, and/ or any ingredients- IT’S GOING TO TAKE A LONG TIME. (I think you get where I’m going with this- be prepared. I wasn’t). I also didn’t really read the recipe in it’s entirety the day before or of the baking. So I forgot it was all in metric. Why doesn’t the US use/teach metric!?
But anyway- we attempted it. We tried to make a spice clementine and ricotta cake from Donal Skehan’s Homecooked Kitchen Blog. (Go big or go home, right?) This is what it was suppose to look like:
All of the snaps were taken on day 2. I forgot to take pictures with Taylor (there’s one on my Instagram) because we were either laughing too hard, or glaring at the goopy cake batter (or maybe even each other).
Here’s how ours turned out:
There’s still a little in my kitchen if anyone wants to try some. 🙂
