I know that this isn't a major disaster but I need to tell someone. Last night I made these really cute flip flop cakes. I had been wanting to try and carve cakes but start simple so they seemed alright. I also have just bought a foam roller and wanted to try the whole roller smoothing thing. The cakes turned out great. The cutting was super easy. And the frosting smoothed beautifully. It was late and I've been having a problem with ants in the kitchen and I have two DD's who would love to get their fingers on cake and icing. So I put the cakes in the safest place I could think of--the oven. Well, that was all well and good until I went to cook dinner tonight. icon_surprised.gif Yep I forgot they were in the oven and turned the oven on. icon_redface.gif How silly of me. Oh well, at least they still taste alright. And the BC is super crunchy now.

Anyway, just had to tell someone.

I have heard of other people doing the same thing on this site so you are not alone!!! And I have to say that when I was reading your post, I was afraid the ants got to the cake so it could have been worse! I bet it won't happen twice!

I did something similar . . . a friend and I made cookies for a bridal shower. We had problems with her dog stealing cookies off the counter, so we slid a few trays of cookies into the oven to keep them away from the dog. I left, and she moved them into the freezer. Took them out, packed them up, and I delivered them the following week to the shower (she went into labor before the shower). I noticed that a lot of the cookies we made were missing - i thought maybe she didn't like some of the cookies, so I asked her what happened to them. She searched high and low - couldn't find them. A few days later, she called me. Her husband found the cookies - in the oven, when he turned it on to make dinner.

Yup! I've been there! I put about 50 fully decorated Christmas cutouts in the oven, to hide them from my dog. On Plastic trays mind you. And my DH decided to make dinner for the first time in who knows how long. Well I came home to a black ceiling, the smell of burning pastic and him swearing. Oh memories. we just have to laugh these things off.

I have done that twice with plastic.....it is such a nightmare to clean and it still smells like Rubbermade on fire everytime I bake anything. I am often tempted to put stuff in there but then I remember what always happens.

Here is an even more humiliating one icon_redface.gif a couple years ago I had pigged out and eaten all the Dryers coffee icecream icon_surprised.gif and didn't want to put the box in the trash since my husband would see it..... so I stashed it in the oven thinking I would throw it out in the morning.

Of course, I forgot about it and then went to a school meeting that night......so my husband made dinner........and turned the oven on........ when it started smoking, he opened it to find a charred ice-cream container with the spoon still in it! icon_redface.gif

oh, the horror.........

Hahahaha, these are some great stories that make me feel better. I did about 250 BC roses for a wedding cake and put them on cookie sheets in the oven to dry. Next day turned on the oven to make the cakes and... yep, you know the rest!! Had to bust heinie to remake enough roses!!

Now, whenever I put something in the oven to dry or to hide from cat/hubby/anyone, etc. I put a note on the handle of the oven. It usually says, "NO!! Don't do it! Remember last time?" Or something goofy like that. Or just, "Remove fondant bows before turning oven on!"

OK my turn... About 14 yrs ago I was going to make a macaroni pie. I had my 13x9 Pyrex dish on the stove top getting ready to butter it. Yep , instead of turning the oven on to preheat it. I turned on the eye of the stove top where I was standing. That dish exploded everywhere. I am blessed to be here & with out a scratch. icon_lol.gif I look in the oven & clear everything off (if possible) BEFORE I cook.

I can't tell you how many plates I ruined like that. My boys used to use the oven as a hiding place for dirty dishes when it was thier turn to clean up.

That is just too funny.....I haven't done anything horrible to any cake stuff yet! But, I left pans in the oven and turned it on before (okay I'll admit it.....a lot!!)...We have to store them in there because there is no other room in the kitchen! I usually freak out when I smell that distinct melting rubber/plastic smell....I guess the melty looking handles give my pots and pans Character!!

I made massive amounts of garlic bread for my daughter's birthday dinner (with 40 family members attending) a few weeks ago. Later that week, I preheated the oven and when I went to put whatever I was making in, I found a cookie sheet with 3 half-loaves of garlic bread on it! It was a little crunchy icon_wink.gif

I can relate, for my oldest daughter's BD I had made a fondant plaque with a poem she had written, that I wrote out with a paint brush a food gels (took forever!!), a fondant bookmark and a pencil. Put them on a cookie sheet and into the oven for safe keeping icon_rolleyes.gif Went to put the casserole into the preheated oven for dinner and we all know what I found icon_cry.gif . As for the stove top, I gave up on those pretty burner covers. I went through dozens, within a week at least one would have the tell tale scorch marks. Now every time I stop to look at new ones my husband just smiles and says NO!

I've probably done it........however I'm so lazy I never preheat......I just turn it on and pop the food in so I usually catch whatever may be in there before it's melted or destroyed!
