Today I was going to post a recipe for my blueberry ripple bundt but unfortunately it didn’t ripple inside so I can’t share a recipe with you that didn’t work. Kind of defeats the point of recipe sharing!
I read so many blogs with perfect food styling and recipes but life isn’t always perfect. I want my blog to be honest, a real peek into my life and kitchen.
We all make mistakes and things go wrong but we only learn from our mistakes not from what we did right. Next time I think I need to make the blueberry coulis thicker, maybe use fresh blueberries instead of frozen? The cake still tasted great but it was more of a sweeter Victoria sponge rather than blueberry flavoured.
The odd thing is I’m a perfectionist and I hate it when things don’t go right. As soon as I have a cake idea I want to make it and share it with you all. If it isn’t a success it holds me back from sharing it on here and I feel like I’m wasting food. Thankfully this cake tasted fine but I’ve had occasions where the item in question is only good for the bin. I’m fortunate Mr T is honest with me and if he thinks something needs improving or doesn’t taste right he will always say so.
I know other people think I’m daft for getting so worked up about a cake but I can’t help it. It took me a long time to discover that baking is something I love and that I’m good at so when things don’t work I beat myself up about it.
I don’t even know where this blog post is going but I guess what I am trying to say is no one is perfect. Life is a learning process and for me I’m always learning in the kitchen. I will figure out where that cake went wrong and eventually share the recipe on here but for now you can just look at some photos from cake club last night.
|It looked a little rippley on the outside but nothing on the inside :(|
Least it looked good on the outside even though it went wrong inside haha!
