This is what I told myself today – IT’S JUST A CAKE, KIM!
It’s 100 degrees in Milwaukee today, and I decided to bake a cake. I should have known this was a bad idea, for several reasons, but we have kids in town tonight, and a birthday to celebrate. The family chocolate cake simply had to be made.
The cake is very delicate and difficult to frost on a cool day. Today, it was virtually impossible. The layers crumbled and broke as I removed them from the pans, but I was able to get parts of them aligned. It looked malformed already as I tried to frost the outside. What a mistake to even try that! I should have quit while I still had something that looked like a cake.
Several silent outbursts later – @#$%^&* – I gave up. I know it will taste good, delicious in fact, but part of me wanted to toss it and tell everyone that I decided not to make it. Here it is . . . the world’s ugliest cake! But it really is only a cake. Life is good. 🙂
