Have you ever tried a recipe, be it from a book or from a friend, that just didn't come out how you expected?
I have....many.
My new fix for these edible disasters is to REBAKE them.
I recently had this experience with a cake recipe that just would NOT bake. It stayed liquid in the middle and crisp on the edges.
I took it out of the oven and stirred it in a bowl and added more flour. Then I decided to EXPERIMENT more and added both dark and white chocolate chips along with toffee bits.
Needless to say the cake, which I then turned into cupcakes, came out AMAZING.
So please, when baking, don't get discouraged. You can always try something new and you never know what will come out.

Baked goods.

Well As Precious Delights is growing so are my ventures.
I have recently taken up beading and baking.
I have surprised myself, not that I didn't believe I could do it, with the end results.

Baking has become the main focus for Precious Delights and I am proud to say the orders are coming in.
I recently received an order for GLUTEN-FREE cupcakes.
Now, I'm not gonna front. I have made Gf stuff before, but just for a friend. The recipe requires way more ingredients and patience that my regular one.
My main worry was contamination with wheat products. So I bought new baking tools to avoid any mishaps.
It turns out everything went ok. The cupcakes came out GREAT!
Glad to know I made a bunch of nine year old girls happy.
