I started baking a pink velvet practice cake tonight while the kids were still awake, which I normally don't do. I had some left over batter, so I made a dozen cupcakes as well.

The cake went in the oven, I made a batch of frosting, cleaned up the dishes, and started getting the kids ready for bed. After taking the cake out of the oven, I put the cupcakes in to bake and then put the kids to bed.

I usually bake my cupcakes at 350, but decided that I wanted to try them at 325 and bake them a little longer to see if I could keep them from doming. I set my oven timer for 10 minutes longer than usual to account for the temperature difference.

So the timer went off and they were still raw and almost wet on top. I chalked it up to the lower temperature, and set the oven for another 10 minutes. When I checked them again....still raw...set it for another 10 minutes. After checking them again I couldn't believe it but they were still raw.

I sat there trying to figure out what was going on when I realized that my oven was off icon_redface.gif . I must have automatically shut it off when after I took the cake out. LOL, that's what I get for trying to multi-task!

I'm so glad I'm not the only absent minded one, lol! I did this with a burner one night...couldn't figure out why the stove area was so warm yet my pot wasn't boiling. Lucky I didn't burn the place down! icon_eek.gif

That could easily have been me... But I think I'm excused as I'm still breastfeeding my baby icon_rolleyes.gif (and I'll have to make up a new excuse when she's on solid food icon_redface.gif )
