And so it begins

After one year of rather intense baking, things are wearing down.

  • I broke the plane I use to grate citrus zest (and occasionally cheese and nutmeg).
  • The non-stick coating on a muffin tin got unstuck. I just have to rummage through a year of receipts to find the right one and get a replacement for the tin.
  • The light in the oven goes on and off during the bake. Not ideal.
  • My hand mixer sounds decidedly wheezy.

On the other hand, after a few episodes where they didn’t want to release the cakes, my 8″ sandwich tins are behaving themselves again. They’d better. *sends a stern look*
