Seriously. Granted, I have done almost no cooking for the past three months, but this cake was a disaster. I wanted to make my husband a cake for his birthday. He’s easy. His favorite cake is yellow cake with chocolate frosting. And, he likes it just as well from a box mix and a can of frosting. But, no, I couldn’t do that. I had to make it all myself. After months of letting other people cook for me. WHY????
I’d show you a photo, but I’m afraid the cake was so ugly it broke my camera. My husband asked if I had made him a “Gloppy” cake. You know, Gloppy, right? The big blob of melting chocolate from the Candy Land board game. Well, if you ever need to make one, I can tell you how.
Here’s the basic rundown of how not to make a cake…unless you’re going for Gloppy.
ICE THE CAKE BEFORE IT COOLS. EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW BETTER.
Then, for fun (and so you can share the blame), let your six year old and your TWO YEAR OLD add sprinkles.
They tell me it still tastes good. My blood sugar was too high from just testing the icing to actually try the cake. Maybe tomorrow. Somehow, I’m sure there will be plenty left.
