Never in my life have I met someone so stingent, ungratefull, and demanding... Last week, I made a very basic but very nice looking chocolate fudge cake for someones birthday where my mother works but since the blackout, it was sitting in my fridge for 3 days and deemed not good enough for the people at work ... So my mother requests today at 3pm, an orange cake...not chiffon b/c its too dry but something dence yet moist but light... Working for 6h making up the recipe as I went along and running out of what I needed in a 5x5 work space with a stove with 2 or 4 working burners that can barely fit 1 of my cake pans let alone 2 while entertaining my mothers guests with coffee. And my mother not only requesting something new of me at last minute. She proceeds to stick her head into the kitchen and not only "suggesting" ideas but also critisizing..."HELLO, YOUR NOT DOING SO STFU" (thought it, not said it...something like that would get me booted out of the house for a good decade)... End result...a very oversized tall cake with exposed sides because the icing didn't want to hold nor did the crumb coat succeed in helping. Ranting over...heres a question for you. How can people expect me to provide the same results as what I make in class???...I had 80quarts Hobart mixers at school, working ovens and stoves, an endless supply of proper ingredients, a partner to aid me, a huge working space...everything I don't have access to at home basically. My moms kitchen is almost as unsanitary, unorginized, and as unequiped as a greasy spoon chinese resturaunt.
