Not always successful.
Lemon Chiffon Cake. Could not get it out of the tin. Tasted good, but ugly.
I notice that sometimes I get very anxious about posting some photos and recipes on here. It's usually when the photos aren't great - or downright bad! - or when the food didn't turn out spectacularly. But you know what? I'm not a professional. Not a professional food photographer, nor a chef. I'm me.
The post earlier this week reminded me about some other not-quite-successes that I haven't wanted to post about before - they just didn't come out as I expected. Some, I'll try again. Some - never.
Supposedly ants on a tree. Did not work out well. Way heavy on the soy sauce. Need another recipe, please.
An apple mousse cake, topped with cinnamon jelly. Or, in reality, the jelly sort of sank in, creating this unappealing cake. It tasted great, but was ugly. *sigh*
White chocolate goat cheese cheesecake - actually absolutely delicious, but I managed to burn the top (which is shaved white chocolate that you put under a very hot broiler for a few seconds to caramelize - but not burn - it.) Served with cloudberry preserves - and this one I will most definitely make again.
Vanilla Roasted Pears. Nothing wrong, exactly, but they were rather ho-hum. Won't make again.
