I like baking. Mostly because the results can be, if you do everything correctly, really really tasty.
With cooking, I can just throw in a little of this or a lot of that, etc and the dish can still be good, maybe even better.
Yes but there is also plenty of room for error. Especially nowadays with so many "home chefs" and people who get really into experimenting because they watch a lot of Chopped you can end up with dishes that are muddled because of too many ingredients or have food that tastes awful.
