Jenny's baking lessons

Sometime ago my friend Jenny asked me to teach her how to bake. I was really surprised of it because she was never too fond of cooking or things related to the kitchen . Yet she decided to buy a KA mixer even before our lessons start and I was so excited about our weekly get togethers!

Jen wanted to start with simple desserts that require only simple skills . Therefore we started off with Red Velvet Cupcakes and Chocolate chip cookies. Later on I introduced her the skill of egg white beating by teaching her the souffle and cake roll. She also got to learn about sweet dough by making the fruit tarts. The most intriguing experience for her was the cheesecake and it was mainly because of how much fat was in the recipe haha! I wish she would continue to bake and maybe we can eventually start doing challenges together...
