Rental ovens are not known for their cake winning formulas. I had a helping hand with this new expensive gadget.
So Mr Smeg and I got to work, I lovingly learnt his settings, twisted his dials and carefully pushed his buttons.
I attempted some cakes, some homemade pies, a quiche. It wasn't great but we were building a relationship.
Then Mr Smeg died, two months out of warranty. Doctor Smeg visited and said it was what happens, wear and tear and all that, fork over $280 and we will be set. I was surprised, wear and tear on an oven barely used over two years??
And what about the electric clock bit I ask.
Oh, says Doctor Smeg, that part alone is $450, I can order it in for you.
No thanks Dr Smeg I mumble. I know I could get a rental style oven for less than that!
And this is how my cake came out!
