Cake Fail. Yes. Again. 3.25.10

It was my turn to host book club. I was very excited and went over lots of dessert options. I decided to go with Katy's Tunnel of Fudge cake.

This is how it turned out.

Yes, that is the plate you can see through the big hole in the back of the cake.

Since this is the third cake fail in one month, I'm considering giving up cake-making. This would be tragic, though, since I like eating cake so very much.

Whatever should I do?

I think I'll make another cake.

It was delicious....don't stop making cakes! Book club was wonderful. Your house looked fantastic! Everything was lovely!

Buy it and then just add a few of your own embellishments and say you slaved over it it all day!

Chocolate tastes good in almost any form. I would eat your cake. :) I have a hard time with those bundt pans, too. My opinion is you should keep making cakes!

It is all about coating your pan well. It is best to butter and flour your pan not just spray it. Especially if it is a moister cake (which this one looks like) My problem is over filling the pan and it drips over the edges and makes it smokey. YUCK!

I totally don't do cakes anymore. I have heard of every tip, and well, me and cake baking are not meant to be. I would have also eaten it, because I think chocolate is great, no matter what it looks like!

Just want you to know I am cracking up and totally needed that. I love your cake. It's beautiful. And as long as I have the picture in my head of the plate showing through the hole, I will laugh. Oh, how I love you.

The great thing about failed cakes is they usually still taste great. Keep at it. If i can do bread, anything is possible.
