This goal I completed a long time ago.  Growing up I always loved baking and I’ve made chocolate cakes, cinnamon tea cakes and probably others that I can’t remember now from scratch using recipes.

In fact, I ended up making a cinnamon tea cake three times in one night as I was baking it to enter into a local agricultural show and the first two cakes fell badly.  Fortunately, I got it right on the third try (third times a charm, so they say!) and I won first prize!  No prize money but still a fond memory to have nonetheless.

Next time I make a cake from scratch I will post a photo here to share.
