My children are better at baking than me. Although I persevere with the whole cake making thing, the fact is I’m just not a natural. I’ve made carrot and ginger cake, forgetting to add the carrot and ginger, I’ve had a cake literally explode in the oven and used jelly instead of gelatine in a lemon meringue thinking ‘well, it sounds a bit like jelly’. When I use those boxes of prepared cake mixture, when you just add an egg, they still turn out flat as a pancake and crunch like a biscuit. Speaking of which, the children and I attempted Christmas biscuits yesterday as part of our ‘advent activity’. I had a few problems supervising the decorating part, but I’m proud to say that the biscuits were edible and I’ve not had food-poisoning, things are looking good!
