Welcome back everyone. As promised, this post will dive into my learning project…Baking. I have no problems cooking breakfast, lunch or dinner (although, I’m sure my wife would disagree) but dipping into cakes, cupcakes and other desserts is something I have never done nor even considered until now. My youngest daughter will turn 2 in two weeks and has requested a dinosaur cake. Challenge accepted. I have decided to go with the pull apart cupcake cake style. My thinking here is that, I can hide the poor quality cupcakes that I am bound to make in heaps of icing and mounds of candies placed on the cake. As well, I think I am bound to get at least a couple of the cupcakes correct, while a big cake is a do or die prospect that I’m not ready for yet.
I found this video on YouTube that gives a nice short demonstration on how to ice the dinosaur.
As of now, this is what I will aim for. Fingers crossed.
I will continue to update you on the process and try to provide pictures next time.
