A Cake Destined for Disaster

I knew it was doomed when the eggs hit the pavement.

I was planning to make a cake for our anniversary, but discovered that I had no eggs. (Apparently Bubba used the last of them for his culinary creation, and left the empty carton in the refrigerator.)  I went to the grocery store, picked up a carton, and promptly dropped it as I tried getting it into my car. The yellow yolk oozed out, creating a lovely mess. I quickly found another plastic bag and wrapped it up, hoping to contain the bio hazard.

When I got home, I discovered that all but four were destroyed. I only needed three, so I was good. I mixed the batter, and was ready to prepare the baking pans by greasing and flouring them. But guess what? I didn't have any Crisco grease. A few choice words went through my head as I scrummaged through the pantry trying to find another solution. I found some Pam non-stick cooking spray. This should work, I thought.  

It didn't. When I attempted to take the cake out of the pan, it stuck. Then it fell apart. Ladies and gentlemen, this is what that sorry thing looked like when it was done:


*Sigh* At least it tasted okay!

  2. As long as it tasted okay, its all good yes? Although those eating it may not know the trouble you went through to bake it. Greetings!

  3. You sure are persistent. I would have given up when the eggs broke. The dessert still looks yummy. After all, it has chocolate on it. Happy Anniversary. 😊

  6. So sorry you had such a bad time with it. I've had days like that too. When I try baking a cake, it likes to crack or get stuck in the pan, so you have my sympathies.

  7. Those are the days when you break up the cake, toss it into a bowl with whipped cream, pudding, and maybe chopped up candy bars, and call it a trifle. Messed up cake is better than no cake!

  8. Never worry about the looks. Sometimes the worst looking cakes taste the best. Happy belated anniversary.
