I realised it has been a long time I posted anything baked. I love to bake. Baking is something with which I had started my food journey. Though I was cooking even before that, it used to be a simple affair. I had never stepped out of my comfort zone and experiment with food. But when I started baking, I started spending lots of time over the internet and various food blogs. My initial days of baking was nothing less than a disaster. I used to feel miserable seeing things getting wasted. But for some reason, I didn't give up.
I learned a lot from my mistakes. And finally, I conquered my fear. Cakes, cookies, Bread I have tried my hands on everything. If time permits I take orders for birthday cakes for my neighbours. So my journey from a novice baker to a decent one has seen ups and downs. But one thing I learned is when it comes to cooking that along with passion, it needs lots of patience. When you are following a recipe especially baking, then follow the recipe carefully. Baking is a science and one just can't play with measurements and process.
If you are really serious about baking then you should first understand some basic theories behind baking, that will make your work quite easy. I am going to share a few tips and tricks on baking very soon.
