Getting started is often the hardest step when it comes to anything new.
I’ve met countless people who tell me they can’t cook or bake to save their life. More often than not, these people have had a couple of bad experiences in the kitchen or have tried a recipe that was way out of their depth, scaring them out of the kitchen for good.
Like I tell all the great, talented kids who learn from me, the scariest part of baking, for a beginner, is getting started.
Here are seven baking tips that will work if you’re just starting out or want your kids to enjoy the thrills of baking! Good luck :)
1. Have fun!
2. Don’t skip the preparation
3 .Learn your way around the kitchen
4 .Take your time
5. Don’t sweat the small stuff
6. Bake what you love
7. Again, have fun!
