baking instructor?

add that to my resume. my mom gave me a container of all her christmas treats to bring to work, and everyone loved them. they all asked if i baked too, and one girl even asked if my mom had her own store! (the answer is no, by the way). she was so amazed that my mom did all that and asked if i liked baking too. when she found out that i, in fact, did like baking, she asked me to teach her! (last years baking weekend here)

the other night i went over to her place to play 'instructor'. no, not really. we hung out and made a cake together. however, she got almond meal in place of cake flour to try and be healthier. i know you don't mess with baking (unlike cooking, baking needs to be exact), but it was already bought and i told her it may not be the same. well, i was right. it came out super oily, but the taste was still there. we had to leave them in the pans to cool overnight, so i'm not exactly sure what it looked like the next day, but she said it was pretty ugly hahah but it tasted good. so i guess that's what matters. and hey, anything covered in that delicious cream cheese icing can't taste bad.

so yes, from now on, follow baking instructions to a T! it's too precise to mess with! and plus, like my mom said, "i don't get why people try to make cakes healthy; you're eating 1 piece, not the whole thing!" or *ahem* maybe 2, or 3...

What a fun night! That is so nice that you played instructor with your friend from work. How's about flying over to Ireland and teaching me? Transatlantic blog meet up, haha!

LOL Love your mom's advice. I think things like red velvet cakes are meant to be fatty delicious bits of awesomeness. Can you come instruct me to make one? I'll confess, I've had red velvet cupcakes, but never red velvet cake. I need to get on this! Hope you have an amazing weekend :)
