I need some desperate help! For my cake final in my baking class I ended up putting double the amount of flour into batter without realizing it and baked it. after realizing what I did I couldn't redo it. Any tips?! Can I still work with it and save it? I know my filling and buttercream is good but is the cake gonna be dense and dry or hard and unusable? If it's dense and dry I could just use simple syrup. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you
possible idea to test out in a small portion and see how you like it before proceeding:
slice it super thin and brush on some condensed milk thinned with simple syrup and alcohol add some flavoring -- or maybe cut it thicker and soak each side -- see if it might could get human again -- maybe steam the cake before brushing with the mixture --
or maybe re-bake slices of it soaked in that mixture with an egg added to it -- maybe apply this with a squirt bottle --
layer it with sliced fruit and whipped cream
maybe make tiny cubes and remix it with the custard and bake? glory -- geez i don't know -- but thin it out & sweeten it up somehow
for the future -- lay out all your ingredients measured into coffee filters and souffle cups before mixing, double triple check your recipe
lemme know how you do --
oh i got another use cubed cake soaked in some condensed milk and alcohol -- some people hate jello but if you can get some kind of infusion into the original cake then stick that in a mixture of 2 pkg jello 1 c boiling water (let dissolve) 2 pkgs slightly thawed frozen strawberries (let this thicken the jello) and 8 ounces of whipping cream (fold that into the mixture -- then add the reconstituted cake cubes) that could be used to disguise it too -- let it set up overnight --
lemme know how you do -- rootin' for yah!
Thanks so much for suggestions! I think i might try drenching it in some cream soda. Cream soda is already in my cake so it will hopefully bring out some more flavor along with keeping it moist!
how did this go for you?
It went really well! It definitely had too much flour and it was dense and dry so I just brushed cream soda on and it worked wonders
