If at First You Don't Succeed...

So cake attempt #2 fell short of success, but I have reason to believe that I'll put it all together sometime soon.

I made myself pay close attention to the details of the recipe. Before each step was completed I double and triple checked the fine print. I was determined not to confuse teaspoons with tablespoons. Really, it wasn't that hard to read and follow the directions. In the end I proudly slid two cake pans full of creamy yellow batter into my 350-degree oven and set the timer.

Too bad I didn't push start on that timer. It wasn't until an unknown amount of time later that I realized the time was not counting down. I was busy on the couch putting together my thoughts on this very blog, unaware of my latest cake-tastrophe.


  1. Oh, I hope the cake came out okay. You wrote with your determination of success. I have a feeling that even if you have to do it again, you will succeed. MaryHelen

  2. I'm just happy you gave it another go! You'll get it next time!

  3. I hate it when I do that! Glad to know I'm not the only one. Hope your cake turned out, I need to quit this and make a cake. Now I will be sure to press the start button of the timer.
