Cake Update

So, I've been working on Big Kid's cake. I found someone to save the day with dino cookies, you'll hear more about that later.

However, I'm doing the actual baking and I've totally gone and screwed things up. Let's say the cake didn't leave the pan gracefully. Let's say it landed in a warm crumbly mound that I picked up and ate by the handful.

I did successfully bake one layer, after much assistance from the bargain board. I guess I'll get another box of mix and try for layer #2 tomorrow.

I think asking me to bake cakes is really expecting too much.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product...and handfuls of warm cake sounds lovely!

Have you tried this stuff?:

I've started dabbling in cake making/decorating recently and this stuff works like a charm. I found my bottle at the evil Wal-Mart. :oP HTH!

Can't wait to see the finished product!

There is one secret I learned to baking great cakes (sadly, it came from Martha Stewart), get parchment paper and line the bottom of the pan with it. Your cake will turn out great!

Baking is another part of the job description for motherhood that scares me :)

Get some baking pam and spray your cake pan. You probably didn't cook it long enough...oops
