Hello hello! I've been in a baking mood this month and over the past weekend I ended up making two cakes. Both were delicious and I can promise, you need these two recipes in your life. And to keep it real, just as I was about to high-five myself for my baking prowess, a little mishap kept me humble ;) Enjoy!
Pretty Spring Cake by Glorious Treats
Before I share the second cake, here's a bit of the back story. Pioneer Woman had a book signing in our area this weekend. Our Saturday was jam packed with activities but my sweet husband made sure I was able to go! The line was crazy so I didn't get a chance to personally meet her, but that didn't stop me from snapping a few paparazzi pictures on my phone!
When dinnertime rolled around my SIL asked if she could peek at the cake in the fridge. Sure! I heard her open the door and then say "Um, Ko, I don't think it looks the way you left it". I rushed out to see what was wrong...
The top of the cake had slid off with half of the cream filling and landed in the door! What in the world!?!?! I was so mad! An entire nap-time was used up making this darn thing! Ugh! I carefully pulled the top of the cake out of the door and put it back on, so mad that I hadn't taken a photo when I first finished it.
Keeping it real Domestic Doozie style! Hope y'all are having a great week!
Awwww :-( The first cake is so beautiful! I love lemon, especially in the Spring and Summer. At least the second cake tasted good. My grandmother calls those moments humble blocks -- they happen to the best of us :-)ReplyDelete
As I looked at the pictures of your first cake I was in awe and then to read that it was lemon...ooh that made my mouth water!ReplyDelete
I didn't even realized that Pioneer Woman had come out with a second cookbook! Good to know :)
Did you ever figure out what made the top of your cake slip off? It still looks like it was darn tasty! :) I guess you'll just have to make it again to get that picture you wanted ;)
ha ha LOVE IT! I love that you shared that fallen cake.ReplyDelete
The first cake though...it is too perfect to be true. I guess you needed the second cake to fall in order to even out your own playing field.
