Food Magic

I've been baking professionally for 5 years and I baked for friends and family for several years prior to that. That being said no matter how many times I make meringue style buttercreams (and I make them up to 12 times a week) my throat always catches when it curdles and I watch in wonder as it churns back to smooth, silky, delicious buttercream.

Do you have something that makes you throat catch and brings a smile to your face?

(By the way my husband thinks this is very funny..."you know that's going to happen"...)
