More frequently known for its dance challenges and humorous videos, social media platform TikTok offers a wide variety of content. More recently, the emergence of cooking content -FoodTok- on the platform has led to the proliferation of recipes.

TikTok provides not only entertainment but also amazing recipes

There is something simply addicting about TikTok. Whether it’s the super accessible format of the social media platform or the amazing creators that populate it, the variety of content on there is truly mind-blowing.

Trying things from TikTok is a perfect way to spend your time if you feel like you have nothing to do. But beware that not everything will turn out as perfect as it seems on the app.

Naturally, I had my expectations set high for this recipe seeing all the hype...
