Just call me Betty C....

As in Betty Crocker...
Or Duncan Hines really
I baked another cake last night. Now if you know me you know this is truly a miracle that I am baking at all.
You know I've spent alot of time and energy talking about how much I can't cook...when really I just needed to try. Or maybe it's that I have grown up some and have the desire to eventually be a good wife and mom and have reasons to push past my lack of natural cooking talent and learn from scratch and the hard way how to get it done in the kitchen.
What ever it may be I think I am now ready to stop talking so much about what I can't do in the kitchen and learn what I can. I can bake cakes. How fun is that!
With all that said...I baked another cake last night. This would be my second this year and possibly only my third in my lifetime, maybe fourth.
I made a Butter Recipe cake with Chocolate icing. It was pretty and it was yummy. Can't ask for anything more than that. It was easier this time and the last time, I actually felt like I knew what I was doing. I actually have enjoyed baking the two cakes I have baked!! So the second time around has already shown that I learn as I do.
Therefore I have plans to do more!!
Here is my lastest masterpiece...

Be patient with yourself! You know from my blog that cooking wasn't always my forte' either but I came around. It took more than a decade but I did come around.
