Baking cakes


Today, when Rio Olympics concluded with many new records, New Zeland athlete won fair play award and great Usin Bolt was on cloud nine when he walks away with his three gold medals.

Much like all these achievements in Olympic history of 2016, my mother is also happy.

It took her three failed attempts and finally her sponge cake is in perfect shape.

She loves doing baking and the most interesting aspect of her baking is the fact that she’s never satisfied with the result. She’s not perfectionist but she’s always looking for improvement in her work.

In initial failed attempts of baking sponge cake, I saw a restlessness on her face.

After applying the layer of jam, it happened twice that the moment she tried to fold it, it loses its shape. It was a long time that she last baked the sponge cake and she was sure that she was missing something. She searched the whole internet and finally she remember that while folding the layer of cake she needed to keep it in a piece of cloth.

That was sure a “eureka” moment for her. So, yes she’s happy and I’m impressed because in studies and in real life, she wants us to opt similar approach. There’s one thing she would love to say

“Never think that you’re done and you have done something extraordinary, for there’s always a room for improvement.”

These are all different flavors of home made special cakes πŸ™‚

  1. Well now your Mom sounds as wise as your Dad, how lucky you are to have such insightful parents!! They are great teachers to you. I love her fortitude in getting it right and I would have done as she did by searching the internet for the answer!! All those cakes look yummy but I must admit I’m drawn to the chocolate one as that is my favorite!! πŸ™‚

      1. Yes Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting is my favorite…I know it’s a chocolate overload but I can’t help myself. For something more simple I love Angel Cake with Strawberries poured over it. πŸ™‚

  2. They sure look delicious. πŸ™‚ I guess that is the beauty of cooking. It has a never ending room of improvement. The dishes can always get better and the ones cooked can always be enjoyed. Out of all the things I do, I enjoy cooking the most.

    I can definitely understand why your mom would need that perfection! πŸ™‚

    1. Can’t agree more with you πŸ™‚
      I remember once you wrote a post in which you mentioned that you like to cook. Not sure, how much expert you are but whatever the case, it’s a good thing that you can cook for yourself and your family πŸ™‚
