This past Saturday I made a cake for my nephew's birthday party. When I made the batter I had a little left over so I poured it in a 4inch pan for a little family snack. My oven is very small so I decided to wait until the other cakes came out before I baked my little one. I had just pulled the big cakes out and put the little one in when my husband asked me to run an errand with him. I figured no big deal, the little cake can wait another 20 minutes. I turned off the oven and we went out the door. We came back 2 HOURS later and my big cakes were cool and ready to decorate. I decorated the cake, did the dishes, made dinner for the family, watched Family Guy and went to bed. I totally forgot about the little pan of batter in the oven. icon_redface.gif I just remembered it this morning! icon_redface.gif Needless to say I trashed the batter.

That is hilarious...i am somewhat of an absent minded baker. Sometimes I have to think about whether or not I've already put oil or water lol.

Better to have forgotten to bake it, than to forget to turn the oven off before you left the house!!

I do this sort of thing all the time...I set a timer for everything. Sometimes when I open the oven to rotate the pans I put the convection fan on for a minute or two to get the hot air circluated after closing the oven door. If I don't set a timer, I forget to shut it off...and have burned more than one cake that way. I forget everything.
