Party cake, farewell cake, and popcorn three different ways.
This week I have learnt many things. Firstly, never stick your finger – or any other body part for that matter – into boiling sugar. And if you do happen to stick your finger into boiling sugar, don’t stick it into your mouth! Do the smart thing, and stick it under cold running water. For 20 minutes, coz you know, that’s what they tell you to do in first aid.
Secondly, if your instincts are telling you to leave, they’re probably right. Don’t hang on because you feel like you might miss out. Know when to go, and go. Seriously, just go.
Thirdly, don’t make cake for incredibly drunken friends. Chances are, the cake will end up everywhere except for the place it’s meant to – their stomachs! And you’ll just be annoyed that you have to clean it off your car the next day. Long story, don’t ask. Just play it safe and only make the cake if you know it’s going to be eaten.
So, coming up over the next three posts. How to make a cake that looks like a popcorn bucket. How to make the most delicious chocolate cake ever. And 3 different variations on popcorn.
See you soon!
