Ahem... I feel the need to explain the post title.
You see, at the end of the film or when you buy a DVD, often featured is the bloopers in making the movie. The funny boo-boos, hilarious mistakes, the great stuff (at least for us watching) actors are glad that didn't make it to the film. That is one thing I always love to see :). A bit of laughter is always welcome, isn't it?
So I'm thinking, as a year ender, I would post a series of pictures that (fortunately for you and unfortunately for me) didn't make it to this blog for several reasons, like:
- Recipe is good but not photographed nicely
- Recipe didn't meet the expections :(
- Basically just cringeworthy.
- The "It's not you, it's me" reason - I can't pinpoint the reason but I just can't upload it to Bake Happy
These pictures have a special folder in the Bake Happy documents - a folder aptly named: ZZZ - never to be published. Yeah "Never to be Published", because I probably will cringe if these pictures somehow find their way to the internet. But then again I changed my mind :) In the spirit of fun, I am sharing some ("some" because there are more - much more!) Wanna see the pictures?
Peanut Butter Cup Brownies
I am officially on the hunt for the perfect brownie recipe. I tried these Peanut Butter Cup Brownies but I don't like how it came out. Though it does look yummy here, no?
What can I say? Nothing. I am cringing. Hahaha!
Kidding aside, I think there are just too much eggs on this recipe. Plus, picture-wise, everything's just too unfocused.
Ahh donuts. I had this "bread phase" when all I loved to bake are those involving some yeast and a lot of kneading. Yummy but a lot of the pictures turned out overexposed. Too bad.
Ginger Mini Cupcakes
I guess ginger for me is an acquired taste - at least when used in baking [because I can totally munch on it raw when my throat hurts - like what I am doing right now cause unfortunately I am sick :( ]
Another one baked as part of my bread phase. I was going for a thinly rolled cinnamon rolls but I guess fate (I mean the yeast) has other plans.
I first learned of this classic Austrian dessert from Wolfgang Puck. When I tried a version I got from a book, I'm pretty sure it was me, but the cake didn't turn out as smooth as it should be. Tastes great though, according to my mom.
Who doesn't love Vanilla Cupcakes? Although the cupcake itself was great, I was having a bad frosting day that day I was making it. See how totally un-smooth it is? But I must admit, I love the bubblegum colors of the frosting.
Wishing you the merriest 2013 my dear Bake Happy friends! Thank you for sharing this baking journey with me :)
