Your cake sank, chocolate ganache separated, meringue did not whip properly… Have you ever been there? I have. More times than I can count. Most of them I had no idea what I did wrong, sometimes I cried a bit or got angry, but every failure made me look for answers and dive deeper into baking science.
My name is Rasa, I’m not a chemist or a professionally trained pastry chef (yet), I’m just very passionate about baking and… I like to make my life complicated. So instead of simply following tested recipes, I experiment a lot in my kitchen to find the best ways to make good-tasting desserts, to understand how and why things work (or don’t work) in baking, to develop, test, and perfect my recipes. It’s not a surprise that I fail a lot along the way. And I’m going to share those kitchen disasters and findings with you!
If you’ve read all of this, I hope that you will follow my sweet journey at least a bit. I’m still quite far away from where I would like to be as a baker, so we can learn a lot of fun and useful things together along the way!
