I was looking forward to making this cake all week. It all started when I made the cake last night, didn't have any parchment paper and my cakes stuck and crumbled apart. I subbed in a box mixe and my oven slightly overcooked them. I had the time set, went in early to check on them and of course they were over done.
I than manged to get the cakes together, the top of the cake barely staying together. I tried shaping the cake (I don't have a round mold) and it just looks like a giant cake with a slight curve on top. I tried doing the ruffle look on the cake and even that didn't come out as nice as I hoped.
Thankfully it is just for a friend, but I am so embarrassed. I really wanted to put this in my portfolio and I guess that's not gonna happen :(. I'm not sure where I went wrong I keep blaming my oven because I feel like nothing comes out right lately.
I've been wanting to start my own business for awhile but I feel like I can get nowhere with this oven I have. I have a oven thermometer and it says the temp is right, but I'm wondering if its wrong. Sorry I just had to vent.
