Yesterday's efforts of baking 125 cakes and goodies did not go to waste however, as the parents couldn't resist an impromptu cake sale in the school hall! After all, who can resist a cupcake, especially on a rainy miserable day! Anything to cheer you up!
I usually bake with block or soft Stork margarine but when shopping for ingredients I noticed on the shelf "liquid Stork".... hhhmmmmm can it be as good as conventional margarine for baking? Well, the result, in my opinion was great!
I usually follow a whipped sponge recipe but the handy recipe on the bottle used an all-in-one method so that's the method I used... and the result was a very light and fluffy cake equivalent to the slightly more lengthy method of whipped sponge. So, a quicker method with the same results gets the thumbs up from me!
So, I hope all of the parents enjoyed their cakes today and as we still have the official sports day to come, we will have "Round 2" of the cake eating competition soon! Local parents can comment below on the "taste score" of the cakes using Stork liquid!
Bye for now!!!
