So maybe I’m just good at baking the things I know…Maybe this was just a little too advanced for me. Maybe I’m not really cut out to be a “Daring Baker.” For those of you who don’t know what this is…I found a fun little group that all bakes something once a month and then posts what they made. This was my first month. I’m really hoping next month will go better or maybe I’ll retire my “Daring Baker” aspirations and stick with Banana Bread (I can make that well at least!). Without further ado here are my “lovely” pictures of what should have been an Opera Cake.
😦 No good…
I probably should have spent my time reading out here 🙂
p.s. It might have helped if I had flat and not warped jelly roll pans and if I actually had a candy thermometer 🙂 Such is life!

Kudos to you for tackling a very challenging first challenge!!! Bravo! Welcome to Daring Bakers!
This was a super challenging challenge…at least you tried…you get points for that & for including photos, too. Hope next month goes better, but glad you are a Daring Baker. Yes, you are because you tried to do the challenge. Welcome!
In my book you get points just for trying the recipe. This one was a doozy.
This was my first month too, don’t give up, you do get points for trying, and hopefully you learned something too!!!
I found the Opera really hard too! Welcome to the group though, and I’m sure you’ll do better next month 🙂
What challenging first challenge! Glad you tried it out. Keep on trying…if you don’t try you’ll never do!
Welcome to the daring bakers! You just gotta keep trying and keep trying! Trust me when I say, the satisfaction you get when you finally conquer a recipe, is immense =)
You had a really rough challenge as your “initiation”… you tried, you learned, you shared your experience. That IS the essence of a daring baker. Congratulations, and welcome!
