Baking a 14in cake for the bottom tier of a wedding cake.. and right as I was pulling it out of the oven, I realized I forgot the vanilla extract... I'm using the hersheys recipe. Do you think this will ruin the flavor? It will only be 1 layer (and I won't forget it for the other 2, that's for sure). I already had to throw away the first baked layer because it stuck to the pan icon_cry.gif I can't really afford to start again (unless I have to)... Will I be ok??

honestly, i think if you add it to the other layers and by the time the filling is in there and the bc is on the outside, and the fact that it's going to be a 1x2xheight inch slice, no one would notice the one layer missing the vanilla...IMHO. i'm not sure if i even would icon_smile.gif i prob. wouldn't rebake again! oh, and i'd prob. put that layer in the middle so it has the most filling around it~

No its not a problem. If you want to add vanilla flavor you could used a simple syrup flavored with vanilla.

I tried a new brownie recipe, forgot the vanilla which was 2 tablespoons and I can't imagine how they could have been better. They were devoured in a day and half. I'm sort of afraid to make them with the vanilla. If they are much better we'd have a feeding frenzy.

Thanks for all the support. I tasted a little piece, and it isn't too bad. Putting it in the middle is a great idea. I was just so discouraged since I had already ruined the first one this morning. Hopefully this will turn out. Thanks again!

it'll be fine. I've actually forgot the vanilla in a VANILLA cake recipe..and it still tasted really good!
