Now before I start this story I should probably list my essentials for baking:
- mixing bowl
- wooden spoon
- cake tin
Now I’ll list the contents of my boyfriend, Joe’s kitchen:
- pint glass
- baking tray
There may be a few other bits and pieces lying around but that’s about it.
So, spending last week with Joe and his house mates I decided to try out a very basic baking kit which just required water and a quick stir. I found this with Weight Watchers’ Mini Lemon Cupcake Mix.
The preparation and bake were really, really easy. I literally just added water to the cake mix and stirred. The box included cake cases so I just put them on a flat baking tray once filled and they only needed 8 minutes in the oven. The icing was exactly the same, just a dab of water and a stir.
The cakes themselves were tiny, which I guess is why you can eat one while dieting, and the lemon icing was extremely sharp. They were quite heavy and altogether quite disappointing.
They were probably the best I could do with such minimal effort but I was left feeling unsatisfied. If you’re on a diet just don’t eat cake and if you want a quick easy solution to your cake needs buy a different brand.
