Today I baked a yellow cake with my dad and it turns out all this time I have been decorating cakes wrong, but I learned the right way to do it. You need to let your spatula sit in warm water and keep dipping it in the water.
The cake mix came in a box which I was not happy about but mum was going to the supermarket so I was stuck with dad and the box!
I did have to do a lot of work:
I had to crack 3 eggs
measure the water and oil
and yes I did use the hand mixer but I finished it by hand - so no, I was not cheating was I? You tell me, but hey I'm only a kid but I've got A lot to say about cooking so keep coming back so my grand parents are not my only audience! You can leave me a message but my mum has to check them first so it won't show up straight away.
Here is a picture of my cake and of me and the cake. I did make my own icing from scratch - see recipe below. Cake Boss look out here I come!
1 cup of confectioners sugar or if you are a kiwi (like my grandparents)- icing sugar.
a dash of vanilla essence.
a dash of boiling water - be careful because it thins out easily.
a dash of food coloring
for the chocolate I put in cocoa powder instead of food colouring.
