When baking goes bad!
I have been meaning to bake whoopie pies for ages -my special tin has been in its wrapper for about 6 months. So, yesterday I choose to make the chocolate whoopie pies from the Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days book.
The internet is full of cupcakes and sweet treats baked to perfection so I thought I would share my not so perfect bakes!
I know where my faults lie...trying to make or do anything with an overtired and at times hungry baby! The recipes says to leave the mixture for 30 mins to chill. I left mine for an hour and a half while I ssshhed, swayed and shook a rattle. So the mixture was too hard to work with when putting in the tins.
Lesson learnt. They do taste delicious and I looking forward to perfecting the recipe soon, but next time I'll wait until the bubba is in bed X
