Who Wants Cake?!! *NIFR*
Today I am feeling antsy for our FET on Friday so I decided to channel all my emotions into baking/cooking. First, I made a batch of Broccoli Cheddar Soup for Mike to take as a lunch for a couple of days (it's one of the only soups he will eat). Then I pre-made my famous Mac N' Cheese to go along with our BBQ dinner tonight. After all this though I still wasn't satisfied so I thought I'd make a Chocolate Layer Cake as a treat for dessert tonight.
I browsed all over Pinterest (my new obsession) and found a recipe for Black Magic Cake. I mixed everything all together and poured the batter into two round cake pans (minus a couple spoonfuls that I may have had) and popped them into the oven. They looked amazing when they came out of the oven!! Then disaster struck. As I tried to flip them out of the pans they crumbled into pieces! For a minute, I considered crying. Then I considered saying screw it and just sitting there eating all the crumbs like a fatty. Then I got pissed and threw every last crumb away in a fit of rage!
**Note, that situation perfectly describes how quickly I seem to fly through different emotions while I'm on all my medications.**
After taking a few deep breaths I decided to give it another go and I baked the same cake again. This time it worked like a charm! Voila!!
Don't you wish you were at my house tonight?
Have a good evening!
