Boy or Girl? Plus the worst cake possibly ever made.

Tuesday, December 27, 2011

One thing you will NEVER see on my blog is a cake recipe. I might just be the worst cake baker ever. The one time I attempted to make a cake from scratch I completely failed. The recipe called for baking soda. We didn't have baking soda and I figured it was only a tiny amount so whats the big deal? Result= flat sad little cake that did not rise.

The second time I attempted to bake a cake (hello box mix) was for my husband's birthday last year. I forgot to grease the pan (picture evidence here). Result= pan cake. The cake and the pan became one.

Soooo I had big plans for the gender reveal cakes. I bought pre made cake mix. You cant mess up pre made cake mix...and I made sure I greased my little baking dishes. Result....

I forgot that cake rises. I filled each little dish to the tippy top with (blue...looks green) cake mix. Lava cake explosion everywhere! My poor little oven needs a good cleaning. Haha they were a disaster. So what to do what to do?

Put lots of sprinkles on it of course! I also did this wrong and did not wait until the cake was "cooled." The end result is a melting little biscuit and gravy looking cake.

The Grandparents obviously did not care :)

Our baby BOY is due June 8th!

Who cares how the cake turns out when there is such good news to focus on instead :) I actually LOVED that you could see the blue so well spilling over in the first picture because I could tell right away that you were having a BOY! Haha. So exciting! I think it's wonderful no matter what you end up with BUT there is something special about the relationship between brothers!

Congrats! Baby boys are wonderful. :) I can so relate on the baking fail. I love to cook and usually luck out when throwing something together, but I can not pull off a successful baked good for anything. Haha.

Aww. I love this on many levels. Woo hoo boy!! The only thing I'm good at is making cake. (tip - under cook by a couple minutes. it always turns out better…and more moist.) You'll get the hang of it! Maybe cupcakes would be a good practice? :) But, I think the cake looks delicious. Sprinkles make everything better.

Daisy said...

Janell said...

This post is too funny! Everybody has that one thing that gives them a cooking headache. I can bake myself just about any cake from scratch but I have THE worst luck with my mother-in-law's Christmas cut out cookie recipe. Every year I find myself cursing/crying/yelling/slamming mixing bowls down or a combo of all of the above lol! Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving such a nice comment.. It really meant a lot! Also CONGRATULATIONS on finding out your bin in the oven is a boy!! How exciting
