Why we Keep Cheryl out of the Kitchen!

It was a simple task: Bake the yummy pumpkin bread that the store sells. It even came in a prepackaged assembly so all you had to do was add the eggs and mix it up. How could anyone mess that up? Well, Cheryl found a way. At first I thought I smelled something burning, but there was supposedly all this time left on the oven. Well, Upon opening the oven, black smoke bellowed out and instead of fragrant fresh baked pumpkin bread, there was the billowing black clouds of burnt carbon throughout the apartment. Cheryl had filled the bread tins too full with the batter and they bubbled over onto the heating element. Naturally I had to come to the rescue and I got blamed for it for not seeing the "flaw" in her baking technique before the disaster. Ah well! After a good chuckle, we cleaned it up and finished the last batch without incident. Despite the drama, the bread still managed to taste pretty good. So it all worked out in the end...like the season finale of exosquad. ( Sgt Frog Reference) The lesson learned is make sure Cheryl has supervision in the kitchen. ( Like me doing laundry) Anyway, some new Origami. A Whale and a lobster. Enjoy!

***giggle*** I almost had an overfill situation yesterday, but as my muffins were vegan, they didn't rise as much as the recipe I normally make. I didn't realize until too late that I'd filled the tins too high.

The origami is amazing...I still need to get my son's friend the book you mentioned!

Very cool! Cheryl and I have been "working" on our baking skills....we managed to make better looking cakes... I didn't get a chance to post all of my origami as of late...been working on birds.

Cupcakes in general give us all a hard time. We overfill them and then have funny looking little cakes. It is hard to know how much one actually needs to put in there.
