Ever since that cake I've been very careful not to leave edible cake things on the table. Until tonight! I made a cake, it was perfect. 9" round and gorgeous. I sat on the couch while it cooled and kept the more likely of the 2 suspects close at hand while the cake was cooling. When I got up to to check the check no less than 1 cup of cake was gone from my beautiful round cake. =( Now I know it wasn't my small trouble maker since I kept her with me in the living room. It was my big fat round tubby cat. She quietly snuck up on the table and had time to eat a lot of cake. I never even heard her. My husband said, now you know why she's so tubby.
Moral of the story, get more counter space or cover the cakes when they are cooling.
The culprit is below.
And now I have to make another 9" round layer along with 2 12" layers. It's too late tonight I was hoping to be icing the 9" cake while the 12" was baking. It's a good thing she's cute.
