We got to spend some time with some college friends today. It was a potluck, and I made salad, coffee rolls and fruit tarts. Since these are a bunch of foodies, I was under pressure to perform 🙂

Of course, the more pressure, the more nervous I get to make things perfect. I had to make two coffee rolls (because the first one cracked). This shell of this fruit tart was under baked and the pastry creme didn’t have the perfect consistency. I’ve made these before and never had this problem. This time, I just got anxious and scooped it up to the bowl. The trick to baking is to willing to accept failures. I know exactly where my mistakes were. I will keep trying, keep practicing until I get this right again. After all, “mistakes are proofs that you are trying…”IMG_9077
