  5. Saw your post on the Kitchn and it gave me such relief. I am just starting baking, seriously just starting, and am learning the different ways cookies can just not turn out right. Its nice to know that you don't have to be a complete beginner for the food to win sometimes. (Though I'm sure it will eventually happen less.)

  8. Looks yummy to me.

    I will share a story of making a cake for the first time with our adopted daughters. They love to bake, etc. But we had never attempted to make a cake with them. So over Thanksgiving the girls and I made the Hersheys Cocoa cake off the box. Well, with two very active girls, I had poured the cake in the pans before I realized I'd left out the sugar! I also didn't evidently grease and flour enough because the cake was yummy but stuck to the pan. However, we all had a hand in it. Husband took it out and assembled it on a cake stand, and then 'glued' it together with frosting (the frosting recipe on the Hersheys box that I used my hand mixer with).

    It was the best cake, and all of us were proud of making it. It was a bit of a madhouse with the girls (next time I will be more organized). And they loved eating something they had made and it got us in the kitchen creating a cake. Reminded me of when my mom and I used to bake together.

    Sometimes the cakes you have to salvage turn out to be the best cakes. And in our case, we had a good memory of making the first cake by scratch with our girls for the first time. :-)

  9. Good for you for powering through! I think I might have just sat down and cried at any given point, and then started screaming and throwing cake into the trash. So bravo for salvaging it!
