At the moment Rockstar’s band is song writing. I don’t really understand how it works. All I know is they go to the rehearsal room downstairs and I hear wafts of music drifting up to me while I bake.
But it makes me happy. I know they enjoy it, although I know at times it’s challenging. Plus I don’t have to feel guilty about the mess I make in the kitchen.
It means we’re in the one location for a while which I enjoy and also means that Rockstar has an outlet for all his ideas.
Baking in different kitchens around the world does present its challenges though.
Using an oven you’re unfamiliar with can mean things cook a little quicker than you anticipate.
Sometimes things get burnt and you have to cover them with a thick layer of nutella to disguise the “caramelised” layer.
Sometimes you buy the wrong ingredients because you don’t know what the name of the ingredient is in the country you are in.
In Australia, the USA and the UK this is what brown sugar looks like.
I thought this was brown sugar
It tastes like flour.
Google translates it as starchy food.
I have ½ kilo of it now. So will have to research what it is.
I also thought this was brown sugar.
It turns your cake into a sticky mess.
However, sometimes things go right.
And you end up with something super tasty for the band to eat when they take a break from song writing.
And that makes it all worthwhile.
