OK - I have made an ugly cake. I mean the strangest cake I have ever seen! Tomorrow is a dear friend's birthday and we are going to float the river, and then have a picnic afterward. So I said, "I will bring the cake!" Which is normally not a big deal for me... I love to cook and do it pretty well if I do say so myself. NOT tonight... I have finally figured out I put one cup sugar and one cup flour instead of two of each. So, the cake is kinda like a torte texture... also the cocoa all baked on the top, so it looks white on bottom and brown on top - just strange. On top of that, the frosting turned out in a way I don't' even know how to describe. I truly have NO idea what I left out if it. I thought if I smeared it on the hot cake it would soften and melt it, it didn't...it is just sitting on top in ugly lumps...unspreadable. I will try to snap a picture tomorrow. OH well, Eric will be getting a bought cake cuz I do not have time to make another one tomorrow!!
Wonder why these things only happen when I am baking for someone else? OH well, not my day for cake apparently!! A lot of more important things went right today, so it is all good!!
