Go ahead and laugh, Erin. Now that I'm over the shock, it really is funny.
This morning I read a comment Erin left on my daughter's blog making reference to a cake recipe she got from one of my blog posts.
At the time I was still undecided as to what dessert I should make for a dinner tonight. Erin mentioning my Almond-Cranberry Cake reminded me that I hadn't made it in a long time.
Problem solved. I'd make that for dessert.
Uh . . . I encountered a little difficulty turning the cake out of the pan and onto the cooling rack.
When I tried to flip it, the cake went one way, the rack went the other. Fortunately, the cake landed on the counter. Above it's resurrected (that's questionable) and on the cooling rack.
I'm a very neat cook and believe in cleaning up my messes. Mmmm, num-num-num!
THIS is how the cake is supposed to look.
THIS is what the cake that is going on the table tonight looks like. Do you think anyone will notice I had a little trouble with it?
Just when it couldn't have been more surreal...
