This is Mom's Gift bag for Mothers Day...I used Diamond Stickles, but the picture makes them look yellow for some reason...not sure why. I used Home Decor for the bird and the circle frame and Wild Card for the 'For You'.
Hi ladies! I got the kiddos to cooperate and had a pizza lunch at my grandparents with the whole family. It was so beautiful here today I even got a sunburn! I am baking away and trying to get everything ready for tomorrow.
Has anyone made Angel Food Cake before? I just made one and it didnt turn out right, I dont think. I love to bake and am good at it...but this cake just doesnt seem right! Any suggestions?
Thanks ladies...I think I am going to go buy the little shortcake cups that hostess makes. I dont have the time, or the energy to try and make this right. It seems to sticky and wont come out of the dang pan!
I have a feeling you did not bake the angel food cake long enough. Did it rise. I use a pan that the tube and bottom comes out of. You let it cool upside down on a bottle of some sort then when totally cool turn it right side up and cut around the tube and down the sides of the pan with a long knife. With my pan you can then slide the side of and then cut the bottom of the cake loose from the pan and flip it. Angel food was all ways my Bday cake!!! when I was little.
Thanks Gigi! It cooked all the way thru, and was spongie on the inside. I used loaf pans, so maybe that was my problem. It tasted good, it just was torn to pieces when it finally came out of the pans. I tried to bake an Angel Food cake before and the same thing happened. I think I will stick to Choc. Cakes!!
Michelle and anyone else who got the jubilee/home decor deal--- have you played with jubilee much? I am going to try and work my hubby for the deal since he is getting so much OT, and am wondering how much I will like the font...
They really are easy and it is all in the pan and the cooling. You really need the two piece pan to make one with real sucess. Baking is my thing, well cooking really. It was my first love. I like nothing better than trying new dishes and new foods.
The trouble with that is that prepacked foods and canned or box foods just are not to my taste. If I want soup, I make it from scratch because nothing from a can taste as good.
I enjoyed making my MIL Beef Barley Veg soup today with extra to last her for 4 meals. Tomorrow I will make some cornbread and take it over to her as her present. She enjoys that the most of anything I get her as she hates to cook for one.
It is very relaxing for me the same as scrapbooking.
