The Baker

Unlike cooking, which I knew I'd be horrible at, I somehow knew that I'd be a good baker (maybe it's because I'm addicted to the scent of freshly baked bread?). So I always wanted to try and bake bread. But in a second thought, I decided that my first baking experience should be a cake and not bread. See, with cake you could always claim that this "charcoal aftertaste" is your signature in pastries, but with bread that would be hard to sell. So after several trips to the supermarket and a lot of online articles there was only one thing to do: call my mother. My mother is my cooking guru and I'm her slowest apprentice. She is always trying to give me tips on cooking that I always forget and I end up calling her when one of my failed cooking experiments go horribly wrong. So after calling her and getting some pointers, I was ready, let the baking begin!

I give you the one, the only, the uber gingerbread cake:


...oh and in case you were wondering, it tastes as good as it looks! YEAH! Hail me, for I am The Baker*.

*I highly recommend the movie by the way!

Bah, I don't care, I took my cake to a house party later that day and it was hit! WOHA!

Munqy said...

Yes, cooking, very gay. How dare you?

Feshfesh said...

Dude, you are commenting on the gayness of cooking? Do you want me to bring up your butter cookies, brownies...etc?

silent observer said...

it looks delicious, wonder how it would taste like with nuttela

Feshfesh said...

Well, I didn't try it with nutella... but with a touch of apricot jam it's orgasmic...

Jade said...

Oh baby I am so proud of you...
& that little crack in the middle looks like the river nile but upside down... But what are the 2 holes in the upper right corner?

Dont worry about your friends calling you Gay sweety... They are just jealous.

Feshfesh said...

Those are a result of me trying to check if the inside of it was cooked well or not... you know how you discreetly poke a turkey? Obviously I failed on the discreet-part :D

Learning for next time :)

Jade said...

Oh look at you so happy & proud of yourself... Learning for next time hm?

Werent you afraid that these are the cookie monster eyes poking out at you & eat you alive at night?

Feshfesh said...

Oh....yes...they haunt me.
*yawn*

PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP!!!!! NOT BUTTER!!!!!!

Butter cookies are for nublets who have no concept of proper culinary skills.

Also I don't do brownies I do Sticky Toffee pudding. Before which I serve shredded beef noodles with ginger, chilli, garlic, soy and honey. Yum.

Munqy said...

Er, ignore the above. The author was obviously extremely gay and has no relation to Munqy, who is too butch and manly to do something as puffy as cooking. Yes I am, and you know it!

Feshfesh said...

*crickets chirping as everyone stares at Munqy.

Munqy said...

The Voice in my Head made me do it!

Nora said...

I am gonna have to go with gay on this one...
Your kitchen looks like kitchens kept by gay men...

You're argument against is just too weak!

Also, what kind of house parties do you bring cake to?

Other than that, yeah, I am jealous of your baking skills... Can you make cinnamon rolls yet?

Feshfesh said...

OH cinnamon rolls... now we're talking! I need to start thinking about my next baking project! Though I am tempted to go for bread next, seeing how uber I am and all.
