So half way through baking my chocolate wasc cakes I "remembered" that I forgot to add the almond and vanilla flavoring! Agghh! I knew I was too tired to be baking! icon_cry.gif Anyhoo, how bad is it going to be and is there anything I can do after the fact? Thanks! icon_redface.gif

Relax, it should be just fine! Just a 'milder' flavor of the original cake base!

Don't worry, once I use 2/3 of a cup instead of a 1 cup in my cake batter. It happens!!

No taste test...went to the freezer icon_wink.gif Just a side note as I'm pretty sure it had nothing to do with the extracts...my 8" choc. wasc collasped. Guess it wasn't my night for baking. icon_rolleyes.gif

I had to throw away a double batch of chocolate cake today (2-10", 2-8" and 2-6") because I forget to add sugar!!!!
Who forgets sugar? Well apparently I do.

I have learned to measure everything out first. Then start mixing...not a good thing to have to start over.

I make a list. Then tick them off. Started after leaving the cocoa out of a chocolate cake.

Maybe you could have used the cake for trifle pudding or parfaits!! I find it really difficult to throw cake away! Just can't bring myself to do it!!! icon_biggrin.gif

I once forgot to crumbcoat before fondant because I was distracted by my family bugging me! What a mess that was...it's in cake disaster archives now...

today im making a 3 layer yellow cake that needs 1cup of butter and after i cut and weighed the butter i put the excess in another bowl and then hubby came into the kitchen to talk to me and then i picked up the wrong butter bowl (about 1/3 cup) and used that instead.... and didnt realize my mistake until everything was mixed and then, only then, i noticed the correct butter bowl sitting on the bench

*sigh* in the bin..... i hate wasting good produce

Hey I but a container of extra cake mix in the pantry with my cake supplies, My DH was looking for flour to fry chicken wings, So you can quess how that turned out. nothing like chicken wings fryed in sugar and flour LOL. Now I label EVERYTHING. I still can't figure out how it was my fault the bag of plain flower was sitting right there in plain site.
