1  COOKING / Dessert / Strawberry Mother's Day Cake =] on: May 11, 2009 08:47:18 AM
finally.. i made a cake that didn't blow up!

2  COOKING / Dessert / Why did my angel food cake literally EXPLODE??? on: May 10, 2009 10:30:10 AM
I don't have a picture of it, mainly because I was so upset I just chucked in all in the trash. I was trying to make a nice mother's day cake for my momma and I figured angel food would be best with a strawberry and cream filling. I poured the mix into two 8" oval pans. They're the pans from Wilton's course 2, if anyone knows which ones I'm talking about. Well.. 5 minutes into baking, I turned the oven light on...and the cakes were HUGE! Not just a little inflated. They were pouring over about 5 times the size of the pan. At first it was funny, but then I got sad. There isn't one thing I can bake or cook that doesn't get ruined. Why does this happen to me? All the box required was 1 1/3 cups water. Help!

I opted out and decided to make some royal icing roses. I'm pretty good at making them, but I guess since I had never made my own icing, it would pose as yet another issue. First it was like concrete. Then I added a tiny bit too much water and it was just mushy. I gave up, threw it all away, and cried. LOL. I'm a big baby.

In the oven now, I have a standard white cake in the same oval pans. If it doesn't come out good this time, I'm done. Hopefully I'll be able to post pictures later.

3  COOKING / Dessert / Just some chocolate dipped strawberries and marshmallows =] on: April 30, 2009 02:47:15 PM
I had gotten a chocolate melting machine thing for Christmas and still hadn't used it. My mother threatened to get rid of it last night so I figured I'd show her that I really wanted/needed it by using it. Work out very well. She seems pleased. *looks over and laughs as her mom shoves a strawberry into her mouth* =P I'm excited to go to the grocery store tomorrow. Maybe I can do the ultimate! Chocolate covered s'mores. Oh man. I'm so hungry now. =P

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / My Very First Mini Top Hat [& My First Post] =^.^= on: July 16, 2008 04:36:23 PM
Okay... So I'm like super duper excited because I only spent.. *checks receipt* $11.20 instead of paying over $35 online plus shipping... *stabs herself in the chest and pretends to die* Grin

Anyways, here are tons of pictures I took while making my hat.. I'd say it took me of about 25 minutes to make... Maybe less. Hope you enjoy. Comments welcome  Smiley
