Adventures of an amateur baker

It all started when I was thirteen years old and accompanied my mother to the renowned shop “Pioneers” famous for all the baking ingredients. After having a look at the various ingredients, I got the idea of baking something on my own. Thus, I bought all the necessary essentials for baking a cake. Since then my journey of baking started.

In order to polish my baking skills and take it to a new level, I took a course in my O’ Levels which was food and nutrition. This gave me an opportunity to collect various recipes of cakes, muffins, cookie, cupcakes and much more. I still recall the blunders I used to make while baking during my classes. One incident which is still fresh in my mind is when I baked some muffins and even after switching off the oven I forgot to take them out. After ten minutes when I opened the oven lid, I was horrified to see my burnt muffins instead of beautifully risen ones. So, from this incident I learned that even if you switch off the oven but don’t take out the muffins, they will burn due to the internal heat of the oven. These are the small things that I learnt while baking. Moreover, due to my passion for reading books, I read a lot of cooking books as well about the tips of baking and about how to convert a batter which has gone wrong into a perfect one just by following few easy steps.

Now I am an avid cook and I bake for my family on special occasions. Moreover, I am venturing into making customized cakes for birthdays and other occasions and who knows, one day I might start my very own business.
