Did it. The cake came out very nicely, but I used almost every dish in the kitchen.

I make cakes and cupcakes for a part time job. Tried in once with instant mixer and it isn't as good as homemade cakes!!

 I recreated the wedding cake that was served at Prince Henry and Meghan Markle's wedding; elder flower and lemon layer cake! It was epic, tasted delicious, and was a wonderful experience to bake and enjoy!

I love baking and I've never used instant mixes and they've always turned out just fine.

This actually ended up being more of an act of desperation that a bucket list item, but here is how it happened:

This was when I was still living at home as I was studying at university, and living the life of a poor student. The parents decided that they would go on an overseas holiday for a week, so they loaded the freezer and fridge with a "weeks" worth of food. I use quotation marks, because that is obviously following recommended serving sizes.

Needless to say, 2 days later, I had eaten all the meat, 2 more days later I had eaten all of the vegetables. With 3 days to go, and not really wanting to go food shopping, I resorted to emergency baking. I looked at the recipe book, grabbed the ingredients, and then just completely guessed how much of each and how to mix/bake. In the end, I had a very moist banilla cake (banana + vanilla if you couldn't figure it out) that was delicious. 

Looking at the recipe book after, it turns out I used nowhere near enough flour, but that would have totally dried out my cake. I'm happy with how it turned out!

The first time a baked a cake with no instant mixes was when I was about 5 years old. My grandmother told me to put the ingredients in and she was mixing with a good old wooden spoon. I miss that.In my family we all have a big passion for baking and cooking even tough nobody in my family is a real life chef. But still we eat great food every day and that's a gift to our lives.
