Utter and totally exhausting exploding cake night.
I should be in bed right now. But instead I am waiting on the second cake to cool COMPLETELY. Why do I even bother with pretty bundt pans? I torture myself at least once a year with this problem.
Ok, rewind time.
I started with the recipe on the back of the Fred & Friends sandwich cake pan.
I made a double batch so that I would have two cakes.
I made the second bake, the bundt cake, a lemon and poppy seed pound cake. I zested an entire lemon and added the poppy seeds.
I greased both pans and floured them.
I did not wait long enough on the bundt cake to take it out. Sometimes I wait too long. I cannot figure out the happy medium.
At least the sandwich cake is still in one piece. I am going to wait longer on this one. Check back tomorrow for creative ways to piece a cake back together. Hey, at least this way I don’t have to worry about slicing her first piece of birthday cake.
I guess I could always go and buy an ice cream cake.
At least we have a pretty peach pie to eat tomorrow, in honor of my father in law’s birthday.
