haha, I can't believe myself today! I was up all night, and apparently am not as 'with it' as I thought!
First of all I totally screwed up my measurements for my IMBC, I was halving everything, but put in the full amount of sugar and 'cream of tartar'.
It didn't seem quite right, but I just kept beating it and it finally seemed to come round, I frosted a couple cupcakes, then did the mandatory 'scarf one down taste test'.
NASTY! It had this awful chemically salty taste.
I went back to my pile of ingredients, thinking something must have gone bad, realized I put in baking soda instead of cream of tartar, and double the amount, haha! I'm so glad I tasted one first. My stomach is a bit queasy, (lack of sleep does that to me,) and I almost didn't.
sigh. That's what I get for procrastinating and leaving it til the last minute :)
AI love the mandatory scarf one down test lmao who does that not me hehe.... good thing you did that little test.
Well if you had served them, their teeth would have been scrubbed sparkly clean from that baking soda! I messed up some pate a choux yesterday, still don't know what I mismeasured. Had to start again, and it seemed like I did everything the same, but the second batch turned out right. At least you caught it!
Wow, that sounds truly awful, lol! I am so glad you caught in time!
