Like most young girls from the "baby boomer" generation I learned how to cook from my mother. We'd bake cookies, cupcakes and cakes. The latter I wasn't particularly fond of as my brothers favorite birthday cake was white cake, white frosting, and coconut sprinkles everywhere.
I never had a piece of this cake. I couldn't stand the smell of it. The reason is I had made the mistake of eating a whole package of coconut snow-balls on a dare from my older brother and ended up upchucking the whole bunch. As a result and to this day, I can't stand the smell of coconut. If someone asks me what kind of dessert I want for my birthday I always say lemon meringue pie. So, when it came to birthday cakes I let my mother make them.
I loved baking small things like cupcakes because you can easily decorate them. So, you can imagine how thrilled I was when the Easy-Bake Ovens for girls came out. I could make all the cakes and cupcakes I wanted. Unfortunately, my first attempt at a cake in the Easy-Bake oven didn't turn out so well. It was hard as a rock and inedible. Subsequent attempts, however, were a hit.
I've always wanted to learn how to make those fancy decorated cakes you see in the bakeries but have never had the time. However, it's on my craft bucket list. In the meantime I set-up a Cupcake and Cake Tutorials, Video's and How-To's for Decorating Cupcakes and Cakes Pinterest board and have been adding all sorts of delicious looking cakes and cupcakes to it. Enjoy!
I would love to learn how to create beautiful cakes and cupcakes. If you would love to learn this, too perhaps these tutorials, video's and how-to's will be helpful.
