I love baking and specifically, I love designing cakes. The more challenging the better. Now, I do not have any formal training so I watch endless hours of baking shows and YouTube tutorials to learn tips and tricks. One of my favorite shows is “The Great British Baking Show”— what those home bakers create is simply magic!
If you are familiar with the show, you will recognize the screenshot above. Every recipe baked on the show comes with these beautiful illustrations that road-map the design and ingredients. Taking inspiration from this, I decided to, for the first time, start sketching out my designs. Usually, I look at a lot of pictures online and then just freehand it on the cake. Sometimes it works and sometimes, well, let us just call it an EPIC FAIL!!! This is my attempt to be a little bit more structured in my approach. Below is how I “plan to design a spice cake. Stay tuned to see if the real thing looks anything like this!
