so its my birthday next week, and because i'm lame and not really feeling like doing anything, i was thinking of just trying to bake myself a birthday cake and, if it actually came out good, bringing it to my language school and sharing it with people since uh, that's kind of the only use of birthday cake that would be enjoyable/not full of personal fail for me...|
after looking up possible recipes online for a bit, starting to think it might not be possible though, to succeed in this idea. the cake would have to be vegan for me to be able to have any, and the only vegan specific stuff i can get where i am is soy milk and margarine, everything else would have to be just standard baking stuff, no special replacers or the like. i also don't have any appliances, just an oven of untested reliability, so everything would have to be mixed/whisked by hand. if the recipes are american i would have to convert into metric, since thats what everything is sold in here. i also don't like anything chocolate, lol...
do all these restrictions sound like a recipe for cake baking fail/disaster, in your opinion? should i even bother spending the time/money in getting ingredients and trying? if you believe i can succeed, do you have any tips on vegan baking with limited ingredients and/or baking without any appliances besides oven/stove?
