Cake Madness

I have a DEFINITE love/hate relationship with making cakes.

I didn't get as many pics this year but it wasn't pretty. Here is a snap shot:

Last Friday:
Made two milk chocolate cake mixes and put them in a big pan.
Baked them.
Let them cool.
Turned it over.
Banged on the bottom of the pan.
Lifted it up.
ALL four corners of the cake stayed in the pan.
The middle didn't.

Oops...forgot to run a butter knife around the sides first. NICE.

Made another cake mix.
Baked it.
Let it cool.
Loosened the edge with a butter knife.
Turned it over.
Only lost a tiny layer of the middle top.

Mashed up all of the extra cake and made the ugliest cake balls you've ever seen.

Researched stable chocolate whipped cream frosting.
Attempted to make stable chocolate whipped cream frosting.
Attempt failed.

Friday: The Day of Redemption
Tried again.

Attempted to make a camouflage decorated cake.
Partially succeeded.

Called it a year. Will hopefully not attempt to make another birthday cake until next August.

Here it is...not quite how I desired but glad that it is done!
