I admit, I am way behind on the culinary “up and up.” I just discovered this cake from 17 and Baking and I think it is so freaking creative. It’s one of those moments where I asked myself, “Why didn’t I think of this?” And then I remind myself that I don’t really enjoy baking.
I know, I know… I shouldn’t shun baking. It’s just that I get so discouraged about it. Baking is nothing like cooking to me. Cooking gives you so much more freedom to toss in whatever ingredients you think might add flavor and texture to your dish. Whereas baking is so much more scientific. The ratios of everything still throws me for a loop. I suppose that is something that will come with time.
Anywho, here is an instructional video on the 17 year old who created this cake. For full instructions, visit 17andbaking.com.
