The next time you bake ask her to come over and watch you. She may just need some basics...

This certainly was cute. Maybe you should help her to learn to at least bake. That could make great memories for you and you sister.

If she was my sister I would help her learn to bake just one or two easy items so she would always have them in her repertoire. I bet she has something else she's really good at though. Not everyone is good at baking.

I have a sib that had a difficult time cooking, baking, etc. When she entertained, I cooked for her. Now as an adult and mom, she tries and makes great shoyu chicken.

Since I knew nothing at all about baking but began voluntarily just to have something to eat, I think the only problem with your sister's baking is that she can't see to read the instructions! Maybe if you bought her a pair of $1 readers, she could bake like mad! Try it and see.

Maybe she is just not good at math. You know those half cup and quarter cup measurements can be tricky if you don't have the proper tools.

Rude for someone to comment on something being bad, just don't eat it if you don't like it. Why hurt De's feelings.

Aloha! I have a friend just like your sister. Once she brought all her ingredients to my house and we both made the same dessert at the same time. I measured, she measured, I stirred, she stirred. I mixed, she mixed. We put the cakes in the oven side by side - hers didn't even look like mine. We had a good laugh at that! But to this day, I can't figure out why. She says it is because I know how to bake and she doesn't.

Great story. Our local newspaper is holding a contest for the worst cook ever. They will win one-on-one cooking classes with a professional
