Final thoughts

It's an easy, no-fuss baking recipe that doesn't take up too much time. However, since it is “baking,” you have to be precise about your technique and measurements. If the instructions say a tablespoon, use a tablespoon for measuring and not a teaspoon.

Another tip is to read the recipe and instructions a couple of times before getting your hands wet. Get familiarized with the steps, and you'll be more at ease once you actually start the baking process.

Line up the ingredients together (measured already, if possible). That way, you get organized, and it'll be easier for you to move around the kitchen.
