So the past few days I have decided to cook cakes. I love cake, any cake (unless it has raisins/died fruit or banana), just give me the goddamn cake.
I normally don’t bake, mainly because the last time I had done it, I was told it was a feminine thing to do. Now I know that’s grade A bullshit right there, but at that time I was quite uncomfortable in my transition. Its bizarre that something so simple could be so triggering towards me , but it was.
Recently I have thought fuck it though, why deprive myself of something so awesome because it doesn’t conform to a masculine way of life. I have said previously that I am not the most masculine of all trans masculine people ( click this link for the post ) and that I don’t think I ever will be. So I decided to throw on the apron and start baking again.
Now for starters, don’t ask me for exact recipes. I do it all by eye and the batches I made ranged between 24 and 36 cakes at a time. But if you want a basic recipe for fairy cakes you can always google it for the best amounts and quantities it will make.
The first batch I made were honestly a bit of a disaster, I forgot I was cooking and they were solid as a rock. My next two batches were amazing. The first one I used a cookie syrup that I would have used for coffee flavouring but I used it in the mix, as well as basic hot chocolate powder. They came out like a cross between cookies and ginger bread. The batch afterwards were peppermint flavour and I was so impressed with what they came out like .
Do you like baking? What do you think are your boundaries with cooking? Do you have any great cake ideas you think I should try? If I like them I will write a post about them. Give us a comment and tell me what you think.
