In-depth mini update (post 6.5)

So due to a long absence, I’ve decided just to post a quick update on how my baking is doing. This post will only contain pictures and descriptions of my baking.
Lets start with the first product: Chocolate Cake!

The ingredients for my cake
Directions for the cake AND the chocolate frosting I made later.
Mixing everything together
The batter in the pan before it goes into the oven.

While the cake was baking, I started to make the frosting (recipe above)

All the ingredients about to be mixed.
The mixed frosting (looks remarkably like the cake batter)

This was the finished cake, with chocolate icing, frozen berries, and shredded coconut.

The next recipe is special, as it is my first time ever making any sort of pie. I present: Pumpkin pie!

The ingredents
Everything for the crust mixed together
Putting the crust in the fridge so it will hold its shape better.
While that is happening, time to make the filling! (I had to make my own mix of pumpkin spice with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves)
The crust is in!
The filling is in as well. I had a rather shallow pan so I had some extra filling.

Unfortunately, I guess I was too excited by the pie that I didn’t take a picture of the pie once it was baked.  I also make a version of the chocolate frosting above except with no chocolate, so it was vanilla frosting.

Alright that’s it for this quick update, I’ll check in again in a couple of weeks for one of my last in-depth posts.
