I made a Ding Dong cake yesterday morning. I was so excited, because the first one was a huge hit, and my bigshot fancy schmany BIL was gonna be there, so I thought I would impress him with it.
Well, everything was going well until I made the filling. After mixing, I noticed it just didn't look right. I kept saying that. I thought it was my imagination, so I started putting it in the cake. Again, it didn't look right. And then, I tasted it. OK, but very vanilla-y. And the texture was weird.
So I looked back at the recipe.
It tasted ok, everyone loved it, but when I cut into it, the filling oozed out. And after some of the cake was gone, the rest just...collapsed. What a disaster!!!
I'm sorry that happened, but at least it still tasted good!
We all have those days! I hate when that stuff happens!
Luckily vanilla is one of the milder flavorings.
Sorry to hear about the collapsing cake.
Yeah, I had a pretty good chuckle about it.
