Fi that is so sad! You'd think with Scotland being like the king of unhealthiest-ever foods* they would be on top of the bakeries, too. :(

I'd say a lot of "traditional" Scottish bakeries are full of crap. It's quite sad really. My first day of college over in Glasgow I got taken to this really posh wonderful looking bakery, I'd walked past it a million times and always wanted to go in, it's apparently famous for how good it is, on the outside it looks like a French patisserie or something and I went in and bought something and it was actually verging on inedible, it was just so bad. And all the cakes were disappointing like that. My mission to find yummy cakes continues!

This thread is awesome!

I love baking. It's one of my absolute favor things to do. I wish I had pictures of the cake I made for my sisters birthday. It was an awesome purple polka-dotted lemon layer cake. It was great. Soon, I'm making cookies for some friends. One has requested special robot and dinosaur shapes. Maybe I'll post some pictures.

Raspberry spiked chocolate brownies! This was the first time I tried the recipe, so there are a few kinks to work out, but all in all I thikn they turned out pretty well. The raspberries went all burnt, but I think that was because of the problems with the cooking time.

Also, how do you make the marble effect in marble cakes. I've always wondered why the chocolate and regular batters don't mix together. i'd quite like to try it.

i'm pretty sure you put one batter in the cake pan first, then drizzle the other, and swirl it in with a spoon, opposed to blending it all together.

I baked a cake!

It's nothing too fancy, but I'm quite proud, as I've never baked anything completely on my own before except brownies, and that's because they don't take much effort at all.

But this is a Victoria sponge, which took a little more effort and concentration on my part, but I'm aware that this is possibly the easiest cake to make.





It's plain sponge, with jam and buttercream filling, and pink buttercream on top because I had a tonne left over and wanted to use the pink food colouring. :)

It is actually rather nice, but there is so much buttercream that I felt rather sick after eating it.

Although that might have something to do with my sister daring me to eat an entire dessert spoon full of the stuff... Blaurgh.

I made some Oreo cookie cookies.

I broke up Oreos and added them to my basic cookie recipe, and threw some white chocolate chips in for good measure.

They were decent. I'll take pictures next time.

I make pretty good cakes, even if I am not very adventurous, I stick with what I know tastes good and make more but I really suck hard at making cookies, They always go out of shape and stick to the paper, too soft, too hard etc. so if anyone could point me in the direction of some advice on how best to stop this stuff happening. Flour, oil, butter I have tried them all but nothing works for me and I cannot find much help on them there interwubs.
Help much appreciated.

I'm making cupcakes, cheesecakes, and carrot cupcakes for my own wedding.

Am I crazy?

Probably. But it'll be fun. Pictures will come when it happens.

As for cookies and advice about them: I don't use parchment paper. Straight on the cookie sheet. I use the butter wrappers to grease the cookie sheets; I usually have to spoon a tiny bit of soft butter on them to grease them well. If they fall out of shape, you used too much baking soda (probably). That's what murders my cookies more than anything else. Fucking chemistry. Also, make sure the cookie sheets and the dough are cold when they go into the oven. I throw my batter in the freezer while I'm waiting for a sheet to finish (my oven bakes fast; five minutes a batch. I hate electric ovens), and I immediately take the cookies off to cool (well, I wait about a minute to let them calm down first). If the cookies are solid enough to be twisted off of the sheet, they're done. Burns your fingers a bit to take them off that way, but it keeps them intact. I cool my cookies on paper towels on my table, and it works well. I want a rack though.

Too soft is better than too hard. You can always put them back in the oven. Hard is often caused from your oven, though. Move your oven rack down if it's close to the top of the oven, or up if it's close to the bottom. I have two racks positioned in the center of my oven, and I only cook one sheet at a time, because the reflected heat from other sheets can fuck them up.

Another thing I've found: if your recipe calls for two eggs, mix in one and check the consistency. One or one and a half (separate out the yolk) might be enough. I hope you know what cookie dough is supposed to feel like. Once you do, you don't forget it, and it's easier to recreate. Maybe your recipe used big eggs and you have small ones... or maybe it's the other way around.

The recipe is not always right. If you're having problems getting your recipe right, do a crazy batch of plain boring cookies. I have a basic cookie recipe that I use for everything and tweak according to the type of cookie (a little more flour in molasses white chip cookies, an extra egg in oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, more of everything in peanut butter, the plain recipe for snickerdoodles and sugar cookies, etc.). Anyway, you just have to try over and over and over again, tweaking little things as you go. Like, do six cookies with less baking soda and check them. Then tweak something else (with the same dough, writing down what you do), and bake again. Remember that baking is chemistry, and should be treated as such when you're figuring out what works. The scientific method is your friend!

Good luck.

ctrl+c ctrl+v to notepad for future reference, thanking you.

I make drop cookies or whatever you call them, I know what the dough is supposed to be like and I have no cookie sheet, just a baking tin which means I can only make 4 small cookies in the flat of the tin at a time :/

When I see a good one and have the money I shall buy one. As for the oven it is just your regular student accom leccy oven.
Also I hardly use any baking soda, never have and see no point in doing so.

Ah, that's painful. For the record, I have cheap baking sheets and they work fine. I make "drop cookies," too. They make for thicker, moister (is that a word? It is now) cookies.

Really? No baking soda? Maybe that's your issue, raght thar!

Ya if your not using baking soda as a leavening agent in your cookies they won't turn out right. All the baking soda does is give your cookies a lightness to them. Nice and fluffy. With out it the feel and taste of the cookies will be off.

I use baking soda yeah, just very gingerly. The issue is not fluffyness it is uneveness and it now occours to me I only tried like 5 times to make cookies, 4 times of which I was hammered in from a club and rather hungry. Maybe it is me, anyway my flatmate wants to make cookies with me so I need to learn, cake will only get you so far in life.

Well, here's my basic cookie recipe:

2 1/2 cups flour (if your dough's too sticky, add more 1/4c at a time.)
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs (sometimes less, depending on egg size. I always add the eggs last.)
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c sugar
1 c butter (melted in the mic with the brown sugar. It makes it better IMHO (and gets rid of any of those hard brown sugar clumps. Don't pour hot butter over eggs. It'll cook the eggs.)
a splash of milk
1 tsp salt

When it's all mixed together, I pop it in the freezer for ten or fifteen minutes, mix again to make sure the consistency is alright, and add whatever I need to to make the cookies I want. Then I grease my sheets, drop the cookies out in 3-2-3-2-3 style, pop in the preheated oven (375 F) for five to eight minutes, and viola.

Yeah, buttercream is the kind of stuff to be taken in moderation. I can't eat very much of it either.

For my birthday a few weeks ago I had a picnic so I was pretty busy the few days before baking batches and batches of cupcakes. Here is a sample of the flavours I made:

Lemon cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting and candied lemon peel

Raspberry and vanilla cupcakes with fresh vanilla beans and a pink raspberry frosting, also white chocolate decorations

Rich vegan chocolate cupcakes smothered in white chocolate and dark chocolate tear drops

They weren't the prettiest things in the world, and the frosting for the raspberry cupcakes was going to be different but I did what I could with the time and they were bloody delicious!

I took a pizza recipe from the Laurel's Kitchen bread cook book, and instead of using their sauce, I just sliced some tomatoes, chunked some garlic, and coarsely chopped some herbs, put them on the crust, and drizzled olive oil over top.
I got to use my shiny new baking stone for the first time, it was great!
