Quantity.. not quality :(

finally start to bake last weekend… just went for quantity not quality… need to bake more to pratice…
plain white one is a chocolate & coffee cheeesecake with whipping cream topping.   the strawberries is a basic sponge cake


My Anchor Hocking 8″ x 8″ baking dish just exploded

Luckily it was inside my oven, otherwise, it would have caused even more harm.  i was baking at 350F and for 5 mins switch up to 400F.  both temperatures are below the baking range.   after 35 mins of baking in 350, i check the temperature of my rib and notice is not hot enough. so i turn up the temperature just by a little to 400F for 5 mins and turn off the oven but leaving the oven door close.  then all of a sudden there were smoke coming out of the oven.  i did not hear any exploding sound but the glass broken into tiny piece all of the oven…
I own that glass bake-ware for less than one year and there absolutely not scratch on it.  I will definitely file complain about this…

plan for this weekend

  • tartlets (cream cheese, cottage, dried cranberry filling) — done partially
  • coffee & chocolate chips cheesecake
  • (the usual) red bean bun
  • green bean  wheat bun
  • (maybe) cream puffs
  • (nice to have) bear bear cookies

** need to buy sour cream
