WARNING!!! Sour cream curdles in cakes! Especially when the idiotic baker (that would be me) forgets to add it as she is mixing the cake and then adds it to the pan after the cake has been in the oven for about 2 minutes!

I thought it would be ok to stir it in at that point - but even after only two or three minutes, the bottom of the pan must have been just hot enough to curdle the sour cream. All I can say is that it was a darn good thing that a little bit of the cake stuck to the bottom of the pan when I took it out or I would not have found out until the cake was served tomorrow icon_redface.gif I volunteered to make it for a baby shower for a girl at work, so it's a freebie, but I would have felt horrible!

Now I will be taking half a day off today to rebake that layer before I go to the dentist, so it will be cool enough to decorate when I get back home. Sheesh... what a maroon!!
