The Cake Dilemma

I made the cake yesterday!!!!!! It was almost a disaster.  For some reason I can rarely get my presentation be nice in any dessert I make. 

Anyways, after work I headed to Sultan Center and got all the ingredients, went home and started to bake.  I did exactly what the recipe called for.  When I took cake #1 out of the oven I realized that I should have used a bigger pan and not what it called for in the recipe, cuz this cake was THICK and it was supposed to be a double layer cake .. umm uh oh .. anyways I took it out of the pan, and left it to cool.

The 2nd cake was fine, it wasn’t too thin or two thick so I put it in the freezer so it could coool quickly.  Then Naggs calls me and asks me when I’m leaving, when I told her around 7:30, she was like woow thats late.  So I freaked outa nd started rushing.  I put both cakes on top of each other (with the ferrero rocher frosting in the middle) and started to make the nuttella frosting.  DID NOT COME OUT AS PPLANNEd.  The nutella frosting was like water, so I decided to just make another batch of the ferrero rocher frosting because it holds out much better.  I forgot to let it cool and just put it on top of the cake.  I went to wash up and change and when I came back the cake had collapsed.  Not all of it just one side, it looked like a crazy mess. 

Anyways I took it to their house and made them eat it.  I didn’t try it, so I can’t tell u if its good or not, but they all said it was goood.

    It wasn’t my plate. Interpretive Dancer gave me her plate because she didn’t want her cookie.

    Now you know that Interpretive Dancer didn’t eat all her cake. *amuzed*

    I think we need some photos here, Chirp!

    When I rush, my results show it. I don’t know why. Sometimes maybe the oven really isnt’ hot enough or maybe I don’t measure things accurately. I did cream puffs last week that turned out like lead balls. Ugh!
