When things go wrong!

Many people have asked me how I "do" it, how my recipes seem to work for me and how amazing my photos look....

SO, I thought it only fair to confess that this is really NOT always the case, I am as human as the next person (well almost :P ) and have bad days and good days.

Learning to bake differently, especially when you are substituting the basic ingredients for a recipe takes time and patience. It may work straight away, but you are certainly NOT unusual if it doesn't! In fact, I am now so used to baking "free from" that actually my "normal" baked goods don't always work...

So I thought I would share this with you - even with a familiar, fail safe recipe I can make mistakes. This was supposed to be a free from chocolate cake.... except I forgot the raising agent.

*Ahem* Make that a chocolate biscuit.


That's when a teenager comes in handy.

It's finished before they realise it's slightly different!!!!

  1. I'm glad to hear that I am not the only one that forgets the raising agent when baking 'free from' recipes. We have had many mistakes like that but they've always still tasted good.

  6. Lol. I am rubbish at baking and following recipes. I much prefer to free style it and chuck random things into a pan and see what happens. It makes for some interesting combinations!

  15. I love your sense of humour about your baking mishap. I think in life it's essential to laugh at oneself at these times - and I'm glad you had a giggle at your 'epic fail'.
