Woohoooo! I baked! lol

Hi there huns!
LOL yup I tried my brand new oven today :)

We're celebrating Orthodox Christmas tonight and I wanted to make something special... so I decided to bake a striped chocolate cake from scratch (even the icing is made from scratch too) :)

You may think I'm crazy that I'm blogging about this but it's actually a real act of heroism for me rofl Cooking is the thing I don't have the gut for... just don't like it, scared of it... I can spend a whole day washing, cleaning, ironing and enjoying it... but cooking is the undiscovered universe I feel too humble to trespass!
Now you might be sure that was a real challenge!!!

Well... I succeeded! :)

Look at the result :)

See you tomorrow - I have a new kit that will hit the store on Tursday! :)
Big hugs your way and happy holidays,
Irene
xoxo

С Рождеством! Так аппетитно выглядит! А я сегодня тоже пекла открытый пирог из песочного теста с вишней!
Счастливого Рождества!

The look on your daughter's face in that second photo makes it all worthwhile, doesn't it? Congratulations on a job well done!

С Рождеством! Я тоже не люблю готовить, но гладить по-моему намного хуже))
Поздравляю! Героический поступок) Выглядит чудесно! Уверена и на вкус так же, глядя на маленькую сластену)
