The mistakes sure provide a funny story. This was me and Mandie's attempt to be nice and make a baked good for a church activity. WARNING to all bakers! Let cakes cool before you frost them! I knew it, but sometimes my lack of patience gets to me. It's called too many to do's on my to do list.
My moto still stands though!
If you can read and follow directions, you can cook. What else is a recipe?
I tell my unconfident students this all the time.
