I Failed The Recipe

Oh my. I just baked what has to be the world's ugliest cake. See for yourself. It's so butt-ugly that I can't stop laughing. I mean Spinal Tap-funny laughing! If you can top this, I dare you to try. It was supposed to be a surprise for my niece Emma's Sweet Sixteen birthday. Fortunately, Emma has a highly developed sense of humor. Sorry Emma. Just concentrated proof of my downward mobility.

And yes, Ava thought it was pretty awful too. She said, "Hey Mom, you just made a real mud pie." She loved the fact that most of the actual cake, which tasted delicious, was left hanging precariously along the bottom of the pans though, and wasted no time in scooping up about 60% to cram in her mouth. Another 10% fell on the floor which made Zelma very happy too. NEVER grease cake pans with vegetable oil and powdered cocoa.

Back to Barbie.com karoke for me.

the money you spent in Sandy Springs did not go wasted. I guess you didn't expect to get the laughs in the kitchen!
