Imagine their faces…

Your whole family is sitting around the table for dinner. You clean the plates away and tell them you’re going to bring out dessert. 

You hear grumbles under their breath

You know they’re not expecting much. Especially after last time. But today it’s different. 

As you bring out the fluffy crispy lemon meringue topped with light-as-air whipped cream, the whole room does a collective gasp.

Your skeptical kids ask in disbelief...

“Did make that?!”

You smile, then walk back to the kitchen to bring out more sweet delights…

A decadent white chocolate molten lava cake…

… home-made vanilla ice cream…

... buttermilk biscuits…

… and a plate full of chewy choc chip cookies still warm from the oven. 

You’ve just taken the crown as the "baking royalty" of your family…

… and those Sunday lunches, kids parties and seasonal gatherings will be the same again.

Before long, even the most unfriendly neighbor from two doors down seems a whole lot more keen to "pop round."

Everyone wants a slice of what you’ve been baking in the kitchen… 

… and you’re finally experiencing the true joy of baking for friends, family and yourself.

Now why I learned to bake well.

Because let’s be honest… 

Baking should relieve stress, not create it.

We’ve all been there; watching the oven like a hawk, flopping soggy bottomed sponge cakes onto the plate and wondering if we should have just bought from the bakery instead. 

Where did it all go wrong? Why is baking so hard? And will we learn?

It’s a shame really, because baking is good for us. In fact, scientists say baking can actually relieve stress. It’s also a great creative outlet. But for most of us, it’s the . 

- Denture-busting biscuits

- Dense and gummy bread

- Cracked and collapsed birthday cakes

- Deflated pastry

… and a whole lot of wasted time, money, frustration, shame…

(... not to mention that look of disappointment across our children’s faces on the morning of their birthday party.)

We see others show off their culinary delights on Instagram and wonder what they’re doing that we’re not.

We follow recipe after recipe and disaster strikes every time, to the point we’re convinced… 

“It must be my oven.”

And sometimes it might be, but nobody has ever told you how to fix that without having to spend $20,000 on a new one.

But in reality, it's things that cause baking fails. 

With the right techniques, baking can be forgiving. Things won’t fall apart, stick, crack, crumble or burn quite as often, if ever again, once you understand the golden rule of becoming a better baker…

Master the fundamentals first and the rest is easy.

When things go wrong in baking it’s because the are being missed. 

I'm talking about the hard and fast rules that nobody has taught you before.

Where most cook books go wrong… 

The reason cookbooks fail you is because most of them assume you know these rules, so they skip past them (or gloss over them at best.)

Which is why, despite all the books out there, the baking fails continue littering our Facebook newsfeeds every day. 

No matter how good the book, without learning and mastering the fundamental rules, baking will remain a constant source of frustration and potluck…

… instead of the joyful and relaxing pastime it’s supposed to be for you.

Your baking frustration ends here.

Today, you’re going to learn the baking rules, shortcuts, tips and tricks that will put the joy, calmness and creativity back into baking once and for all…

... and win you the gushing respect from friends, family and work colleagues for many years to come.

This guide starts where it matters.
