I'm not sure where my brain is but it hasn't been in the kitchen w/me today.
1. The chocolate WASC cake was done & on the cooling racks when I realized that I never put in the oil from the recipe. The regular WASC recipe doesn't use oil so I wasn't completely paniced but I'm wondering if that is why it didn't rise up as fluffy as usual. Taste-tested it when I leveled off the tops. It is super moist & yummy so I guess I dodged a bullet.
2. Started a batch of WASC. Sifting the white box mix and it seemed to have a lot more of the dry crunchy bits than typical. Thankfully, they got sifted out. Cakes were in the oven when I opened the fridge & realized that I never put in the SOUR CREAM. Not sure what those cakes would be like so I pulled out the pans, dumped them and started over. Thanks God that I keep extra supplies on hand.
Those cakes are baking now but I'm feeling behind schedule for getting everything filled/settled/crumb coated by tonight. Still need to make the candy seashells for the cake AND finish laundry AND deal w/kids & homework.
Awww..sorry you are having a bad day. I have done that been there. Those kind of days are the ones you just have to push thru. It will come together..even i you have to stay up a little late. Good Luck!!!
I just had one of those days a few weeks ago. I hope the evening turns around for you and you get them crumb coated tonight. If not, well, there is always tomorrow!
