I was making this beautiful, delicious looking cake, and all was going well, right up until the gremlins attacked my cake. It was fine after I took it out of the oven, but sometime during the cooling process and the finishing, gremlins snuck into my kitchen and wreaked havoc on my cake. I was embarrassed to even mention it, but then I thought I should show all of you that even Jeanne, from “A Jeanne in the Kitchen” has those days too. You are not alone. It happens to the best of us. Most of the time, I am able to fix things so no one would ever notice, but this was not the case this time. The cake still tastes very good, and Larry and I will still enjoy eating it, but it most definitely was not the prettiest cake I’ve ever made.
This is what the cake was supposed to look like. The end results were nothing like this at all though.
I tuned my back for just a bit and these guys paid me a visit, and attacked my cake.
When they left, my cake looked like this. I guess we all need a slice or two of humble pie (or cake) every now and then. So don’t be discouraged for all of you inexperienced bakers out there. It happens to all of us. I will definitely attempt to make this cake again, and we will see if I can master it next time.
