Not Everything I Make Turns Out, But Even The Mistakes Taste Great!
Every now and then I make a baking mistake,
Usually it is when I try a bundt cake,
I don't know why,
no matter how hard I try,
I usually give up and just start to cry.

The above poem was inspired by my lack of baking abilities this past Tuesday I tried for what feels like the millionth time to make a bundt cake, and for about the millionth time I failed. I went to and graduated from cooking school years ago and even though I bake a lot I still make mistakes. Why this always happens to me is the "mystery" part of today's post.
Then I made a pot of tea, sat down, dried my tears and ate my mistake cake which tasted pretty darn good. Come to think about it that day we ate the Dora cake where she was having an "allergic reaction to a bee sting" tasted pretty good too. At least I can laugh about it now.
I am happy to report that my second attempt bundt cake not only turned out but looked amazing for my friends surprise 30th birthday brunch. She even stopped by with out knowing Tuesday and had a piece of the first mistake cake.
The moral of the story here is if you happen to ever have a difficult time baking know you are not alone. The best part of this bundt cake mistake was sharing it with her, with you and the wonderful memories it has now created. Both the new cake and the mistake cake tasted pretty good too. If you would like to give a try to Bundt Cake Making may I recommend this fun book called Bonkers For Bundt Cakes. I just love the title. You can view or order this book by clicking here
