Making my Christmas cakes today, I started with the blue silicone spatula. It was great for scraping down the sides of the bowl, but somehow, it was way too bendy to do any mixing.
So I took out the bright orange plastic spoon from the drawer. It was stronger and that nifty little hook on the side meant that it didn’t fall into the mixture when I stopped stirring to add a bit more beaten egg. But it was too big and too awkward to do any serious mixing.
It was time to get out the old favourite; the wooden spoon with a long handle. It was strong enough to do the mixing, the handle didn’t fall into the bowl and it was just the right spoon for the job.
In no time at all, the cakes were in the oven, filling the kitchen with a delicious aroma of Christmas baking.
Four hours later, the three cakes were ready to take out and are now cooling. I must get them wrapped and ready for when Goldilocks comes to visit
