It is said that baking is nearly as old as man's creation of fire. Early man mixed broken grains with water, forming a paste, then cooked it on a flat stone over a fire to create a primitive flat bread.1 Fortunately, the methods used to bake bread have evolved over time allowing a variety of confections and pastries to form.
