let’s bake a cake!
so, last week i made a chocolate cake, and i don’t have regular cake pans, but i do have a bundt cake pan, so i made it in that, and besides the little bit of overflow it turned out REALLY f’n good. so i decided that i’ll make one for work tomorrow for valentines day except throw in some cinnamon extract and put red hots (which are extremely difficult to find in a measurable quantity) on the icing. don suggested putting a pudding filling in it to make it more creamy or rich or something, so i said sure why not, so i put in probably 1 3/4 cup of pudding in the middle of the cake batter when i poured it in… and threw it in the oven, i checked it at the time it was supposed to come out, and it was ALL over the place with overflow (good thing i put foil down this time) but it wasn’t done, so i continued to let it cook for another ten to fifteen minutes, and it continued to seep out of the pan, so i took it out, and wasn’t so sure it was done, but wasn’t sure why it wouldn’t be done after that amount of time, b/c it was last week…well i let it cool 20 minutes in the pan where the recipe called for 10 and then i tried to turn it out onto the rack… where it promptly turned into a puddle of goo. it was definitely not done, only a very small part was actually cooked… *sigh* boo.
