It’s really not common to find someone who doesn’t have at least a bit of a sweet tooth. Most of us have more than a sweet tooth; and making desserts from scratch is an incredible way to satisfy this.
There is a strange mystique involved in pastry and making dessert, which suggests that it’s much more difficult than regular cooking. On a certain scale, there’s some truth to that (especially in the professional cooking world), but is this the case for home cooks? No way. Whereas precise measuring plays a greater role, much of dessert making is to simply follow the recipe. Apply the KISS principle: Keep It Simple Stupid. And, just as in cooking dishes, after you learn the few basic techniques and principles you’ll have a lot of leeway to customize and turn recipes according to your liking.
