About the cake

Last night was one of the few times I've wished I had kids of my own. You see, I baked a cake and decided to try a Martha hint I heard about. I normally grease and coat a pan with flour, but heard that cocoa powder works as well, plus it's brown and won't leave a white residue on my chocolate cake. Well, my friends, Martha was wrong. Cocoa makes the cake stick. Or maybe that's because I was overeager, and tried taking the cake out of the pan early. I also decided that sifting the powdered sugar for the frosting was a waste of time. Regardless, last night I wished I had a child, so I could blame this on them.

Yup. The cake fell apart and the frosting was lumpy. Thank goodness chocolate + butter + sugar still tastes good. And since the frosting already contained yogurt, it meant I could stir some of the leftovers into my yogurt this morning.

Happy birthday to me!

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog, I appreciate it!! Too bad about the cake (it ain't major and sure would have ate it anyway, my weakness is chocolate) but I see some really good recipes here. Bookmarked ya!
