So this is my first blog post (finally)! I just wanted to get something out here, so I’m going to gripe about failure cake.
I have a problem. I love semi-useless and strangely shaped baking pans. Every time I buy one, the first few cakes I bakeÂ in them work out perfectly, and then never again. I committed to baking a Kosher for passover octopus shaped cake for a coworker recently, and stayed up past midnight three nights in a row trying to get it to work. No dice. I got the tentacles out of the pan, but not all at once, and the head of the octopus was a total loss. I’ll get this to work eventually because octopuses are just that cool. They deserve a cake tribute.
I wanted to be able to deliver something for Passover, so I switched to tiny flower-shaped cakes that I *knew* would work with box cake (a fool proof plan?). No. The cakes just won’t come out of the mold! But man, they are so delicious. I left them to my roommate who gladly consumed them.
So to leave on a happy note, here is a genius idea Katie and Michelle devised at poker. Cookie sandwich made with snickerdoodle cookies and filled with snickerdoodle cookie dough. Cookie squared == so good!
