We’ve been baking unsuccessfully.

When we were going to enter the big gate into the big park Silky barked like a huge vicious dog and tried to attack the gate as usual.  Mummy opened the big gate a little bit.  It was a little but wide enough for me to get through.  Then, Silky went mad, really really mad.  Mummy let the gate go to hold Silky back and BANG!!  I was stuck between the big gate and the fence.  They are huge and heavy, daddy.  I was shocked and wanted to cry.  I didn’t know what happened.  I was so scared, daddy.

大きな公園の大きな鉄の門を入るときにシルキーが吠えて引っ張ったので、支えていた門を放したらそこにはCocoが!バン!と挟まってしまって急いで開けたけどショックだったみたい。可哀想にー。幸いケガはなかったけどしばらくショックから立ち直れない様子だったのでオヤツをあげたら立ち直った。ホ。。。

Mummy apologized and said that she didn’t know I was there.  I’m not sure, daddy.  She might have done it on purpose.  I was still scared and sad but mummy gave me sweeties and the pain was gone.

By the way, Silky suddenly decided to bake Shortbread the other day.  It seemed that Shortbread was very easy to make so I decided not to interfere but assist.

ところでこの前、簡単簡単とどのレシピにも書いてるショートブレッドを焼いてみることに。

This is confident Silky and me examining the smell before baking.

材料混ぜて焼くだけ。ほーんと簡単よね~。

While the Shortbread was in the oven Silky started watching telly (some nature program) so I took over.

手伝ってくれてたシルキーちゃんも余裕の前足クロス座り。テレビ見てます。

Beep…beep…beep…The oven is calling us, Silky!!  Woof!  It looks good and smells good.

However, when daddy tried it he said that inside wasn’t cooked enough.  I baked a bit longer and then it became a bit crispy for Shortbread.  Hmmm…any recipe says it is easy to make but Silky failed.  Why?

出来上がり。見た目は立派なショートブレッド。でも中がちょっと生焼け?おかしいなぁ。時間長めにしたのに。もう少し長く追加して焼いたら、中は焼けたけどショートブレッドにしてはクリスピーに。簡単じゃないやん。

By the way way, I suddenly decided to bake Blueberry lemon drizzle cake.  I found this recipe in a magazine and it says “Lighter”.  Woof!  Sounds good, especially for daddy!
The recipe was for 20 cm cake tin but I used mummy’s small cake tin (12 cm) so I halved the ingredients.

I was glued to the oven, peeping inside.  The cake grew and grew, and it became like a huge muffin.  Why?

そして今度は雑誌に出ていたヘルシーバージョンのブルーベリーレモンドリズルケーキ。レシピは20㎝の型。私のは12㎝なので材料半分にしてみました。しかし!膨らむ膨らむ。まるで巨大なマフィンのようになってしまいました。うちではダディが私のベーキングの試食人。もしも美味しいと言ったらばCocoちゃんにレシピをブログに書いてもらいます。

Daddy, you are our baking sampler so if you say the cake is tasty I will write the recipe and everything.  Hmmm…but it shouldn’t look like this, should it?

      Hello Sherri,

      It seems that you like baking, too. What I like is to see the cake rise in the oven. That is the best part of baking. Love Coco and Silky

    Your food still looks good. Wish my baking would turn out this pretty. Coco, sorry you got between the gate & the fence. You know your mummy would never do anything to hurt you.
    Love you girls so much.

      Hello Gail,

      I took my blueberry lemon drizzle cake to daddy’s uncle and auntie, and they said it was very tasty. What I want to do is making the cake look prettier.
      Yes, I know mummy wouldn’t hurt me but sometimes she is scary, you know. Love Coco and Silky
