I was just finishing up on a pumpkin chocolate chip cake when all hell broke loose. I had just taken the cake out of the oven. ( It was a dome cake). I was going to make some frosting from scratch, but I didnt know how so I asked my aunt. She said that I should just eyeball how much powered sugar and how much other stuff should go in. I was a little freaked out but I tried it anyway. I wanted the cake to look like a pumplin so I dyed the frosting orange, and a little part green. I didnt have any pastry bafs and no sandwich bags so I took a hamburger bun bag. ( ya I know- stupid). I put the orange frosting on the cake, and of course the cake was still hot. But It was really late and I wanted to get to bed and not wait for the cake to cool. But it had already started to run down the cake. I was trying to hurry and get it in the fridge so I put the little bit og green in the hamburger bag and cut a hole on one of the corners. The corner turned out to be alot bigger than I thought. It was way to big to make a noce leaf out of, but I didn't really pay that much attention. I put the leaf on and it looked like crap. But I put it in the fridge over night hoping it would ferm up. When I got up the next morning, all the frosting was at the bottom of the cake so I hurried to get it back on the cake. I was going to bring the cake to school for one of my classes. For a project I am doing on baking. When I got it there my teacher saw that I had a cake and he wanted to take a pic of it. I really didnt want him seeing it but I had to let him. When I took the cover off I could see that he was trying not to laugh, I was so freakn' embarassed. But it made it till last period when I had that class. Everyone in the class didnt care cause it was a cake but the leafe part of the frosting had like hardend flat in the cake, as hard as a rock. I hope I can someday live this down. icon_redface.gif
