AND...yes... icon_cry.gif I TOTALLY forgot the 4 tablespoons of oil... icon_sad.gif This is going to be a carved cake... Am I completely screwed?

It might be a tiny bit dry, but 4 TBSP is not a lot of oil.

Thanks for answering JoAnn icon_smile.gif

I guess I will try to use it for the "handles" of the scissors, and if it's toooo dry I will just have to rebake on Wednesday... I can't believe I did that... I will be more careful tonight. So the Oil affects the moistness of the cake?

Thanks again,

If this is for a cake that will be laying flat on a board (but carved). I'm sure it will be fine for that. I would take a little taste while your carving to make sure it tastes okay. If you used a cake mix it should be fine. I might consider rebaking if it was going to stand up with supports and it would be real tall. HTH.

This will be absolutely NO PROBLEM! I'm embarrassed to admit how many times I've forgotten the oil. icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif The oil is more for preservation than moistness anyway. Don't worry about it!

the creamer you used is full of fat and the cake mix itself has some so your cake should be fine.

Oh Wow icon_biggrin.gif What a relief! icon_biggrin.gif Thanks all! This is for a girl at work, and the last thing I need is for her to not be happy with the cake. I really appreciate you help!
