Baker woes

Over the weekend, I had a baking frenzy... mainly because we had a special guest to feed. The guest also proved very useful as a mixing and whipping machine... aaahhh, managed to save myself some muscle work there...

I tried my hand at concocting my own version of honey and spice cake. Basically I added some mixed spice (which consists of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) and honey to a basic cake mix. The cake tasted beautiful but the crust was little burnt... possibly due to the honey?

Next, I tried making this supposedly beautiful ricotta cheesecake. It was so pretty the first time I made it >>here<<. Sadly this time it fell to pieces when I tried to turn it out. It still tasted alright. I think it was because I forgot to grease the baking tin.
