For a few months I worked in a bakery where my main jobs were to wash dishes, help customers and occasionally bake cookies… Sounds glamorous, I know. My brother just turned 25 so I decided to try to make a fancy cake like I watched my manager do so many times. I had a couple challenges that I had to overcome while baking it.
– ran out of icing after the top (I put quite a bit of icing between the two layers)
– the cakes got stuck in the pans and some of the bottom cake came off
– the cake was crumbly came came apart when I was icing the cake
So I improvised. I melted some chocolate chips and glued on chocolate bark which I had made yesterday.
I then put some of the melted chocolate in a plastic bag and cut the corner off and wrote on the cake.
Although I had a couple challenges, I am quite impressed with how the cake actually turned out.
I look forward to improving my baking skills and eventually making really fancy cakes.
