Prior to yesterday, baking was not exactly my thing... The mere thought of putting anything in the oven scares me. I was actually content with just opening canned foods or cooking using the stove. However, after reading some easy recipes that do not actually look too daunting or difficult to make, I decided to learn how to bake. And the first thing that I baked is the devil's food cake.

First step is to prepare the tools and the ingredients to be used:
|New countertop oven from Hamilton Beach|
|New egg beater, two 9" round pans, sparkle gel, toothpicks|
|Fresh Eggs (used three)|
|Crisco Olive Oil Spray|
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
2. Spray 9 inch pans with oil (Crisco).
|Three eggs. They look like a smiley face. GOOD OMEN! Lol.|
|Water, cake mix, and eggs before combining.|
|After mixing the ingredients. Looks yummy already.|
|Batter on the pan.|
|Baked cake. :)|
6. Cool down cake for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely before applying frosting.
7. Stir frosting and apply as desired. Honestly, I'm not one to talk about how to professionally and beautifully put frosting on your cake. This is the part where my cake started to look ugly. Tip: if you're just a beginner, choose chocolate frosting instead of vanilla.

My brothers are beginners too when it comes to designing the cake. But kudos to their efforts, right? :)
And that concludes my beginner's recipe for baking Devil's food cake. :)
Hmmm.. I think I want to bake again. LOL. Let's keep life sweet, shall we? Happy baking everyone!
