I learned how to bake today, oh well, sort off. Today is the special dinner night where people in my co-op volunteer to cook which means people who live in the house can get free food, yay!
I need to complete 3 hours of Community Engagement for living in the house but I did not do any even though it is the end of the semester (oh well, I am just an awkward and struggling Berkeley student who is trying hard to be average on the curve, don’t shame me on my lack of social lifestyle!). I asked Jordan, my housemate if I can do anything to help and to get my hours. There I was, helped him bake three big cake. It was my first time baking cake (I know right?). I did not grow up with an oven. Also, my family did not like sweet that much. My mom is not a very good baker (sorry mom, she is an excellent cook though).
What I learned throughout the baking process:
1: Jordan is super nice.
2: His cakes are so much sugar. Omg, like we put 8 cups of sugar in 14 cups of flour. I don’t know much about baking but seeing that much sugar in my food scared me.
3: You need a strong wrist to bake. Jordan asked me to mixed the ingredients together. I was too slow. I did not use enough force. I was like “Jordan, my hands are tired, how about you mix, and I do something else.” Jordan “oh well, there is not much you can do.” Me ” you are right! lol”
4: I did not know egg replacer exist.
5: We forgot to put baking soda.
Besides that, my phone died when I was at Amazon trying to pick up my package. This happened twice already. They could not help me charge it because they were about to close in 5 minutes.
