The first time is always not perfect.
I don't think there is a truer saying than this. I can never ever seem to get things right the first time around even though they look ok they are somehow not perfect! Though I must confess I made a dessert(turn to page 7-8) last night, honeycomb semi-freddo for the first time and it darn near turned out to be perfect. There is still some in the freezer for a second helping tonight to see just how good it was!
