I’m a TERRIBLE cake maker. I can cook, I can bake breads, but cookies and sweet things? I am the master of disaster. So we’ll see how I go.
But first, this was my dinner.
Zuchinni, fetta, tonnes’agarlic and tomato pizza.
I’ve never baked a cake that wasn’t from a packet before. This is going to be my first ever cake. I did a couple of things wrong and I don’t have all the correct measuring equipment so I winged it a bit. It’s in the oven now and I don’t know if it’s right but we’ll see in another 20 minutes eh?

equipment & measuring Surrogate Sifter
I didn’t have the right measuring cups and then I accidentally put a 1/4 cup of cocoa in the mix instead of 2 tablespoons. It’s Ok though. I almost put 1/2 a cup but I noticed just in time. I don’t have a sifter, so I used this milk frothing doobie that someone gave me instead. Needless to say, it was a flurry of floured failure.
Oh dear, my camera battery has run out. It is baked and looks lovely. I am letting it sit, as instructed and hopefully the battery will charge enough to take a photo of the eating…
Baking. The Eating.
I’m pretty fucking impressed and kinda proud. Wee heee. I baked a cake! It’s not too bad, actually. I forgot to get cream or icecream but the choccy sauce is delicious. yummm, I’m off to eat now!
