You Save My Day!

Before I get on with my weekly posting, I would like to thank you the STAR Newspaper, Star online especially to the people at Weekender Section for noticing Big Boys Oven and had advertised about our baking classes at the What’s Happenin’ section . . . . thank you.

Well . . . . last saturday . . . . this was what happened to me . . . I had invited a few friends over for dinner . . . they will be bringing over the dinner and as expected, I was to prepared the dessert.

Well, I did prepare the dessert for the night . . . . . . . but I wrongly gave the box of dessert to one of my customer . . . . only discovered this just about an hour before the guests arrived . . . . . . gosh, what a nightmare as I got no dessert for the night.

Well, I had to come up with some thing quick . . . . . . and yes, I found a box of Pillsbury Yellow Supreme Cake Mix in my kitchen cabinet . . . . quickly I whipped up the yellow cake and baked them in small baking tins . . . . . this was a speed baking as I need them fast . . . . . yes I got them baked and had them served with orange-lemon sorbet!

    Haha! Good save :)
    Thought I haven’t tried this yet, I might make churros next time I’m in a rush. The last time I was, I just so happened to have apples and ice cream on hand– made a crisp instead :)

    Great idea! I have had some dessert disasters in the past and had to run out to the pastry shop to buy dessert.

    This kind of cake mix will come handy when you need some quick dessert. I will have a few boxes in my pantry. Good Luck with your baking class.
