Day 143 – Baking Trial

I’m on a tight deadline, so this weekend will have to involve primary construction of my architecture project. I picked a recipe from Taste.com.au, and made it in full measure assuming I’d have to do a second larger batch to complete all the surfaces.

Apparently dimensions can be deceiving.
Reading “7 cups of flour” should have given me a clue.

In any case, I decided to proceed making all the dough, but only constructing a single roof segment tonight. Because it’s the largest and trickiest single piece to make with the oven at my disposal, and it will give me enough indication if the rest of my plans are workable with what I have.

I hope to have the rudimentary undecorated house standing before the end of the weekend.

Then there’ll be a few more evenings for embellishments on the exterior, before it’s time to eat my creation. I’m having a lot of fun already.

I just wish I could taste a bit… but I need it for the finished product. And I forgot to bake a spare piece!
