I want to bake cakes to take into work tomorrow. But I also have a broccoli and half an onion that need eating soon, and was thinking of having broccoli and sausages with onion for dinner. Is there a way of baking the cakes and cooking the dinner on the same evening without the cakes absorbing broccoli/ onion smell, or do these activities need to be done on different days? Which is it better to cook first?
Possibly relevant information about this specific situation (though I think more general answers would be better):
- There is an extractor fan which can be used if necessary (though it's very noisy and annoying).
- The cakes would be cupcakes/butterfly buns with buttercream.
- I prefer to do the sausages and onions in the oven rather than the frying pan, but don't have to.
