Let me start out by saying, I hate baking. I actually hate it so much I give it my highest culinary respect. However, I want to learn to master it to become a better cook. So I started practicing. My dough always comes out fine, the taste seems spot on and it does what it is suppose to. However my problem is that it never "looks" like it is suppose to. To give examples my french bread was a simple fold over and when it came out it was all balled up on one end. When I made home made buns they were all funky sizes despite using a "cookie cutter". Youtube videos and all I can't seem to master the "Forming" part of it. I understand practice makes perfect, however I can't master it when I have no idea on what I'm doing. Let me know chefs! Thanks.
If you would like pictures of what my steps just let me know and I can try my best to post them.
