New Hobby, New Interest

well, people [if there are really people reading this], i have found a new soulmate. no joking, no kidding, it's the BAKING thing. for some people, they might have liked this, wayyyy before me, but at least, i'm now having it in my list.

i've been in love in baking ever since i was in secondary school. but, at that time, due to my so-called laziness, i just had my focus on one and only thing that i did well, the trifle. never miss that dessert in any function or ocassion, whether in school or at home. and i'm now realised that it's been a while since my last trifle being made.

okay, enough reminiscing the old memories. back to baking. i had my hands on cupcakes when i got home for labour's day a week ago. the first try was all perfect, at least, that's what i could say, when seeing my little brother, stopped from playing ps2, sneaking to the kitchen, just for my pure, plain cupcakes.

so, i thought, i'd be doing more before i left home the next day. that night, i doubled the ingredients' measurements, there they went, the all-rise cupcakes which fell back to the base after few minutes. it's middle name was a big FAILURE!! it became so sweet, which i believed due to false measurement and i forgot to put this and that according to the priority. *sigh*. it's a good lesson, tho.

anyway, i've found lots of blogs, with various recipes, from pastries, cupcakes, cakes, cookies, dessert to breads, you name it, i have them all. for the least.

and, i'm attracted to do my own lists of things i'm going to bake like some of the bloggers do.
