One baker in Colorado-
I definitely have much more respect for the bakers on the great British baking show – not that I didn’t before. They have mega skills, and I’m always impressed. When my cousin and I decided to have our own bake off and chose brownies, I figured the decorating would be the least of my challenges - LOL!
Thinking my artistic skills would be a plus I was in for an awakening. What artistic skills??????? I had trouble even pulling a straight line using the prepackaged decorating frosting. I practiced on a few of my ‘Grandmummies’, but as you can tell from my close-ups— practice did not even come close to perfect. But I will say the Bake from Scratch recipe was divine. Onyx black cocoa, bittersweet chocolate morsels, butter, dark brown sugar...
Oh well, I guess I’ll eat my mistakes!
Cheri on the other hand knocked it out of the brownie park. Several designs, great presentation and yummy, flavorful (I’m told...) crumb. We decided it was a tie. Bravo! Bravo! Two winners!!!
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
