Day 9 - Talk about a cooking disaster
Well, the most recent would be making my 3 year old's birthday cake. He loves carrot cake, so I decided to make it from scratch, which is normal for me when I bake. I enjoy using fresh ingredients and really creating something yummy, I am not a box cake mix person. Well, after two hours trying to bake with both of my boys running through the kitchen, sometimes helping, sometimes upset I finished mixing the cake and put it in the oven. I looked at the counter and found my eggs for the batter still sitting behind the mixer, and was unsure how much baking soda and baking powder I had added if any at all. The cake came out and tasted decent, but was soooo thin. I ran out of time and ended up buying the box mix. I did however make my own cream cheese frosting and marshmallow fondant. Did I mention I also had to decorate this sucker and this was only my second time using fondant! He wanted a Peter Pan and Captain Hook cake, here is how it turned out:
My brother shares a birthday with my oldest boy, so I made a cake for him too.
The Peter Pan Cake, and oh boy was it sooooo yummy :)
