today i tried vanilla cake, chocolate cake, strawberry cake, and thin mint cookies and swiss buttercream and strawberry swiss buttercream.
all were failures. I am following the directions and i believe im getting the measurements correct. she does oz instead of cup type measurements so i used my food scale.
the vanilla was so so ok think it needed more vanilla flavoring
strawberry was a total failure. did the puree like she said and added it to the vanilla and the cake didnt rise at all and was so soggy with burnt edges trying to cook the middle in this 6 inch cake pan
the chocolate texture was funky, and had a major cocoa powder taste.
the thin mint cookies the taste flavorwise was decent but the cookie completely crumbled into pieces and she didnt put what kind of chocolate to dip in so i used milk chocolate thats all the store had then i realized she probably used dark
the buttercream tastes ok, but when added the strawberry puree it had no strawberry taste to it.
anyone else have bad results from her cakes? they seamed so promising.
im starting to loose hope in getting away from doctored box recipes. i love the taste of them but want to just feel prideful that my stuff is completely scratch and not have to worry about a cake flavor not being in or it being recalled like one has been in the past.
where can i get good basic flavor recipes at????
