Cakes and cookies! Most of you probably don't know but I finally got a stand mixer two months back! It was one of the cheapest at the appliances section and I figured that since I will not be planning to make anything fancy or complicated I didn't want my family to pay several hundred dollars. The month of June was a super fruitful one with the help of my boyfriend of course! Together we made some really yummy baked items!
Believe me when I say this was the first time I've NOT had to cream butter and sugar or whip cream by hand as we've never owned any kind of mixer, hand or stand! Even the most simple bakery tasks had to be done by hand and so now things are so much easier and faster!

|Things baked at home for June! Strawberry shortcake, chocolate chip cookies, rainbow cookies, salted caramel chocolate cake!|
|Covering the first layer with whipped cream that has gelatine and sliced strawberries!|
|My completed assembled strawberry shortcake! After putting the second layer of cake on top, I spread the gelatine infused whipped cream and placed the cake in the fridge so the cream set, then I placed the strawberries on top!|
|The balls of chocolate chip batter! These cookies ended up pretty big so now I make them half the size! Loved watched them spreading when baking in the oven!|
|Martha's recipe gave me nice chunky cookies that were firm and chewy! They had a texture those pepperidge farm large cookies and not so much the cakey texture that some have.|
|Soft funfetti rainbow sprinkle cookies! I followed a recipe on a baking blog site and I've tried other recipes before but these although very yummy were TOO soft!|
