Now that I am the proud owner of a KitchenAid Mixer I've been looking for recipes more than ever. I've always been into baking & would often whip up a batch of cupcakes or a plate of cookies so I feel like I can take my baking skills to the next level & start experimenting a bit more!
Pastel Rainbow Layer Cake: I've been obsessed with the idea of creating a rainbow layer cake for years now, in fact I have made two, the first turned out to be a massive fail as the sponges all turned funny murky looking colours (I now know that gel food colour is your best friend when baking colourful cakes etc), the second one was layers 3 layers of different blue shades for Doms 21st. I was actually pretty impressed with that one but sadly I have no photos of it as my iPhone was stolen that night & we didn't have wifi in the flat so the photos never saved to my iCloud! Anyway my next goal is to attempt a 6 layer pastel sponge cake, I'll keep you all updated!
Pug Shaped Cookies: I guess this is a kinda obvious one, anything Pug related & I'm immediately drawn to it & whilst cookies are a pretty easy bake, it would be cute to make Pug shaped ones. My only problem is trying to find a Pug shaped cookie cutter that isn't ridiculously overpriced, no way am I paying £20!
Macarons: I really, really love Macarons, especially ones from Laduree which I've been lucky enough to sample a few times now. They're such a luxury little treat, but one that is really worth the wait! I've heard Macarons are quite a challenge to make, but I'm still tempted to have a go, especially as Macarons are so pricey to buy so it would be nice to be able to make my own!
Funfetti Doughnuts: I feel like baking doughnuts would be like unlocking a level in a game, doughnuts are life, well for me anyway! I think it would be pretty awesome to invite all my friends round & be like "hey! look I made doughnuts!" - I feel like they would be impressed with me anyway haha (:
Nutella Braided Bread: Nutella on toast is one of my fave sugary snacks when I've no chocolate bars/sweets to binge on so a bread that has nutella plaited through it would be my ultimate comfort food.
