From the primordial soup a flower emerges…


Before Team Pretty Bake was but a twinkle in our collective eyes, Misses Rose and Emily embarked on their first baking adventure, in search of novel culinary delights and a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Little did we know that this delightful day would spawn such a creature that is being nurtured as Team Pretty Bake. The planning was only momentary, and the photography experimental (read inexperienced and highly under-qualified), but if this was just the beginning, imagine what's to come.

Our first event was a simple affair. The outlay was simple – only things that required the use of Miss Rose's newly adopted Kitchen Aid® (with hilariously over-sized transformer which was indeed more than meets the eye) could be made.

Consultations were made with the omnipotent Mrs. Alexander and Beer, the source of all things that must be true was extensively googled, and combined with Miss Rose's quest to uncover the ultimate gingerbread recipe, the following menu was set:

Bienenstich
Gingerbread
Fig and Walnut Torte
The baking was intense, the whipping most furious, and fuelled by chicken quesadillas, we completed our first ever baking extravaganza with just a hint of self-satisfaction. As Team Pretty Bake was not yet conceived and the planning not yet blog-inclusive, I will simply give you pictures…

Miss Emily, your talents are surely wasted in the lab. Team Pretty Bake needs to open up a shop, West Footscray could certainly benefit...from such delights
