Like I'm made of glass, like I'm made of paper

I’m nearing the point of explosion yet again; just that tad bit more and I’d really lose it. I’d send everyone cowering under thunderous fear with an Arian side but inasmuch as I’ll like to think that it’s possible, it’s merely an overstatement to keep me sane.

The failure of the recent cakes have elevated my fury to this unbearable level. What irritated me was that whenever the cake is perfectly baked, it will laugh its way to the bank but whenever I want the texture to be perfect, the cake’s forever partially baked.

That’s for the chocolate cake.


Believe me when I say that it doesn't resemble a cheesecake. Up until now, I don't even know how to describe the texture.

As for the no-bake cheesecake, the texture was terrible (as you can see in the above picture) and the taste was off. I can’t place whether it was caused by too much sugar (from the crust and 1 Tbsp molasses sugar) or the excessive liquid.

It's either the temperature of the oven or the recipe that needs to be worked on.

Until that day arrives, I shall take a break from baking (since I've ran out of cake/pastry flour) and explore more as a foodie instead...

  1. yikes! but i guess the key is not to permanently give up? just like the infuriating 'candy crush' game that we've all been playing, we might get stumped for a long time, but we finally succeed :D

    1. Yup, Sean, that's the key in succeeding in baking. It's just that I'm a little crossed by the failure; am waiting for me to get over it before I start afresh.

      Nothing like a fresh breath of air. =)

    1. You read that right, Eunice. I know, I know but before I can fix the problem, I need to be in the right frame of mind. =/

      No worries, Eunice; no offense taken. =)

      I'm sticking to RT Pastry's cheesecake, for the moment.

  3. It doesn't look like a cheesecake either. :)

    I'm not saying it doesn't taste good, it looks rather like cheese. Taking a break is always good, you'll get back into baking with more passion after!

    All the best!

    1. Thanks, Huai Bin. =)

      That was what I was thinking too. Who knows I might just come back with an apple strudel? xD

  4. Just have fun with baking. My first baking session ended up hard like a rock that even when I dropped it on the floor, it wouldn't even break!

    These days bad days end up as biscake. I have a laugh...and we eat it if its edible. Otherwise, we laugh and compare the fact that its still better than my harder than rock cupcake.

    Hugs!

    1. I know, missyblurkit, that I should've fun in baking. I guess I'm too influenced by the baker's perfect pastries...

      I like your optimism, missyblurkit. *hugs* Thanks for the words of encouragement. =)
