WARNING – my food won’t always turn out right but I guess that’s all part of learning. |Welcome to a new friend: Anita Larr

Hello. My name’s Anita Larr, I’m 17 and live in on the outskirts of London. Ha I just sounded like I was on take me out! anyways,  I thought I’d finally give in to writing a blog based on my only interest in the world: Food!

Probably like every other food lover/blogger, most of your day is spent based on what you fancy for lunch or perhaps, like me, you like to sneakily peep at different recipes on the internet whilst in work, hoping that tilting your computer screen is discreet enough to hide it from your manager. I am not a chef or anything like that; I purely just love my food!

WARNING – my food won’t always turn out right but I guess that’s all part of learning. So if you have any free tips you want to share, feel free to pass ‘em this way.I do enjoy cooking but not every night as mum thinks I enjoy doing. I live in a family of 5 who all enjoy their food as much as I do and all enjoy cooking, when it suits them that is. As well as my dad, whose famous Moroccan chicken curry is a very ‘slimming dish’ (in other words – if you wanna lose half a stone overnight then try it!) I have two brothers Ajay and Arji, with me being the middle child and only girl. This may come to no surprise but I can sometimes be and always stand my ground at times when it comes to kitchen (I cook; they clean!) Being Indian and  ironically not that keen on curries, you may think i’m rather odd! But seriously my mum used to make it like three times a week, which is enough to make anyone sick of it! I mean I think I can even make one blind! And that is not an exaggeration!!-I guess you can say that’s a little skill up my sleeve.

Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading my experience, including all my ups and downs with food, odd and yummy recipes, and even my own view on the total cool and hip places to visit in London! Haa as if I really go out that much anyway. But I do do my research and when i’m away from the kitchen or office I like to visit nice bakeries and restaurants – so tune in to find out more!

So yeah anything which is on my mind I will blog it – which I suppose is what you do on places like this?! I have to be honest again, I am a new member to the baking society, so don’t be too harsh. Having just completed a cake decorating Level 1 course which has pushed me to bake more and better, thanks to the help of my lovely tutors Pat and Rita, the tutors recipes. I’ve liked baking cakes for as long as I can remember, probably before I could even walk, but they never turned out the way I wanted them to. That was until I had realised you have to follow the recipe exactly as it is and not compromise because of what you have left in the cupboards. AND that you have to use the correct scales to measure out! So apologies in advance, I’ll probably be posting up cupcakes every week.

Read more to find out what’s new. Thanks for reading!!!.

Recipes Gone Wrong

You’ve probably read me mention how i’m a new baker and i make hundred and thousands of mistakes when baking. so i will post up my mistakes and THEN show you how i have resolved the issues. stay tuned to find some recipes you’d think is simple and how i’d make out there so much worse.

4 Cakes in 6 Hours.

Another baking session I’m afraid. But since it was with Jenny it’s not the typical pretty cakes, just plain weird with her. So on Saturday Jenny stayed over for the weekend after meeting up for a picnic in Hyde Park with Jemma, Jenny, Ajay and Arji. Was actually a lot of fun! It was a lovely weekend with Jen, our serious talks in the garden with the chiminea smoke permanently blinding us. We had a laugh. So whilst Jenny was here she wanted to bake cakes. Now this was serious; since Jenny is the sort to claim she baked a cake when clearly all she did was add an egg and a few drops of water and bung it in the oven. Ta-Dah, Jenny’s homemade marble cake! So I gave her the basic recipes for sponges, to try at home.
Now I am not exaggerating here, it took us 6 HOURS. Really and that wasn’t decorating them like I did with Nicola. And by the end of it, I think it was safe to say Jenny and I was not ready to see another block of butter for a while. I have to admit we didn’t get hungry once whilst baking, and we didn’t even need to mindlessly nibble on a slice of cake throughout. So thumbs up on the diet side. BUT a BIG thumbs down on the whole weekend, food wise. I have to admit I still use the recipes from school and that was like 2 years ago. But I guess Mrs Abbotts would be proud. So the sandwich cake turned out lovely! As for the others…about that. (Look at the pictures, and then you’ll understand)

McDonalds Cake

so we started off making a sandwich cake, which turned out to be Jenny’s results cake. Now you’re probably thinking, “what is that?” Well Jenny has only just turned 17 and is doing A-Levels, so she has just finished the first year (A S Level) and gets the results this THURSDAY, so i made her and her friends a cake for when they go out for a meal to celebrate “all their hard work throughout the year, gone down the drain”; Jenny’s words not mine!

plain SpongeTurns into This!

McDonalds

So Jenny asked to make this. i would explain more but there’s more to the cake.

My Marketing Strategy

Thought Id post up my way of advertising Larrdarse. The story behind this was: i went to meet my Cousin Jessie at her work place (she’s a makeup artist for Benefit, which i take advantage of at times or shall i say  will do) and we went into the apple store for Jemma (Jessie’s younger sister and my best friend!). The dope some how managed to get the headphone cable thingy stuck in the hole (not sure if you understood that?). As she waited in the queue for the Genius Bar, I, like everyone else does when they’re in the apple store, decided to go on every device i could get my hands on and open the internet and went on the blog… hope this has helped with the views!advert

[Terry: I love the marketing. I can only hope that the exposure here can equal the Apple Store]
