My First Baking Lesson

I can’t believe that I signed up for the baking lesson. I was filled with excitement for this was my very first baking lesson. All this while, I buy recipe books and follow the instructions from the book. :) It didn't turn out nice coz books never elaborate much on do and don’t, so you don’t get the perfect cake as shown on the recipe books. I am sure many of you will agree with me :) I have lotz of recipe books on my book shelf and those that I tried are from Amy Beh , who at least gives tips to successful baking. (",)

How this baking lesson came about ? Well , two Sundays ago, this church member brought a beautiful delicious chocolate hazelnut cake to church , her contribution for the refreshment after church service. To my surprise it was no ordinary cake. It was the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted. As as you know that I have this incurable passion for baking * wink *I won't let this opportunity slipped my fingers ...heehee ,I went up to her and thanked her for the cake and at the same time praised her for her talent in baking such a beautiful cake. (haha...I am up to something * wink** ) Then as we chatted on , she told me that since I love baking, why not signed up for this baking class with her teacher. The first thing that came to my mind was " huh…sign up for this baking classes…." . She must have seen my expression then,she assured me that it will be worth my every penny if I signed under her teacher :)

So,I asked her for the teacher’s handphone numbers . Thought I will call the teacher when I am ready to sign up for the classes. One thing leads to another and soon before I realised what I had done, I was signed up for the baking lesson. And to my surprise ,I even managed to persuade Ernest to sign up for it too. Thus, here are the pics I have uploaded and posted here for u guys to see what we learned from the baking class. Even though it was expensive , it was worth it. Haha, I think I deserved a break and I had so much FUN there and looking forward to the next lesson (",).
