Bake a cake or make a cake? That’s a really important question – to anyone who bakes or makes the sweet treats. No real difference? Think again, as Laugh Trek picks the expert brain of a real cake maker.
Bake Or Make A Cake?
We caught up with baker Todd Baldwin to educate us all on just how careful one must be when whipping up sweet tooth attractive confections.
LT: Thanks for the sit down. It’s long overdue.
TB: I’d say so – creating baked goods is some serious business.
LT: Indeed. So, let’s get right to the core of the equation. Bake or Make? What’s the difference – if any?
TB: There is! Baking is, well, just that baking – it’s the heating and cooking process. It may mostly end there, but it sure as heck doesn’t start there!
LT: Right. So you’re saying planning that cake itself – gathering the ingredients, essentially the blueprint so to speak, the prepping, that whole process is the basic make of the cake?
TB: Exactly! Say we want a yummy carrot cake. We need to get the carrots – we need to chop them up – we need to grate them – etc. We need to measure them up. This is all the ‘make’ – not the bake!
LT: What’s the Netflix show going to be like? Any previews?
TB: I can’t say much, for now, but this will be a show where the make of the cake won’t be fake!
LT: (laughing) I love it already.
TB: Those on the take may bake a fake cake, but my style is to make the cake!
LT: This is eye opening, indeed. What’s your advice for all those other aspiring Cake Makers out there?
TB: Keep at it! Nothing improves without practice, practice and more practice. And the best part of making a cake is the practice of eating it!
