Baking Basics for Beginners to Master

Mastering the art of baking is something you do over time, and with a lot of practice.  It may seem like it just comes easier to some than others, but it's all down to experience.

With experience comes knowledge and intuition that will help you achieve that level of perfection that we all desire.

Well, I know some of us just desire to have something come out that doesn't taste horrible.  And that's okay too.

The point is, you learn a lot from practicing and you should practice hard and not give up.  After failing many times, you will see that even you can make something good.

I would recommend practicing how to make the following things to help you be a more well-rounded baker. 

These are all the basics of baking, and once you learn how to make them, you can make a lot of different things.

1. Buttercream Frosting
2. Basic Cake (chocolate, vanilla, yellow, red velvet, etc.)
3. Chocolate Chip Cookies
4. Homemade Whipped Cream
5. Homemade Pudding/Custard
6. Caramel Sauce
7. Pastry Cream
8. Cream Puffs or Eclairs
9. Meringue (either Italian meringue frosting/pie topping, or meringue cookies)
10. Chocolate Ganache 

You'll see that with the techniques used to bake these basics, you can feel more confident in many baking adventures.
