Can you bake? Do you like to bake? If so, what do you like to make.

I am a big baker. I love to make desserts: pies, cakes, brownies. My MIL calls me the cupcake queen b/c that's what I really love to make! I try to make them on the big holidays with a theme. I also bake bread.

Eyeball cupcakes for Halloween this year:

Rainbow cakes for my son's third birthday:

I can't find anymore right now as I am on the new computer and all the pictures are on the old computer :(

I looooove baking!!!

Mostly arabic sweets like baklawa, kanafa.. I like making aatayif- that is my absolute FAVORITE. I like doing pastries too- and a big fan of cookies! Not so much into cakes and things- but I always wanted to try fonduant and decorating a cake with it!

I love to bake brownies, chocolate chips cookies, chocolate cake, sugar cookies and peanut butter cookies with hersey kisses in the middle.

I have an easy recipe for baklava that I use. I don't think I could ever make it from scratch!

I love to bake!  I'm not super creative, but I love trying new recipes, especially cookie recipes for the Holidays.
I give all of our neighbors and the kid's teachers an assortment of homemade cookies in a cookie tin every year for the Holidays.

My dh thinks I'm nuts at Christmas time because I am baking every day.  LOL

I learned when I was so small to do allt hese things from scratch- it's the only thing I know! Plus I love the kitchen being filled with women and chatting it up while we go! It's the best part of baking and cooking for me!

I absolutely LOVE baking!  Pastries, cakes, cupcakes, cookies..... you name it I love to make it!  I especially love to make deserts from Spain and my famous S'more cupcakes!   My family calls me betty crocker for that reason.  I just hate to do dishes afterwards.  I truly make a mess when cooking or baking!

I looooove baking. I mostly do cakes, pies, and bread. I still have a really hard time w/cookies. Maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong. It seems like my batter is always too runny. I am I over beating or just using too much liquid?
