Hooray! My baking hobby has been going on for a full year now!
For those of you who might wonder how I got into baking in the first place, it all has to do with a very pregnant Mrs. deserting the kitchen for the home stretch and leaving me to my own devices. I think she's glad I kept it up. ;)
The first thing I baked was "Rich Man's Brioche" from the Bread Baker's Apprentice.
Here they are again baked for this year's holiday.
I guess word of my baking has gotten around town. Someone asked me to bake a cake for their sons' party. I baked an orange genoise for them from RHC.
