Fabulous Instructable, lousy result... Answered
Recently, I baked a cake that I had long awaited making. Just the right time.
Just the right pan. Just the right season for pecans. It was a sure hit.
Everything was beautiful, everything fell into place. The pictures were fabulous.
The cake was gorgeous. This was going to be made in many homes. My tutorial
was divine and thorough.
So came the time to cut the cake. My parents, my son, daughter-in-law and
husband were present. I was so proud! Everyone took a slice and began chewing.
And chewing. They each had that 'Uh, yeah, it's, uhh, yeah." look on their faces.
My son said "Oh, it's not that bad, after you chew it for a while."
This was an epic disaster. This cake was so dry, I could have gagged.
There were suggestions of soaking it in coffee. Covering it with whipped topping. I could have died.
Needless to say, after tasting the crime that was this cake, there was no way
it was going up on Instructables. What a waste of time and food product.
Thank goodness the chickens loved it.
Has anyone else ever experience such when trying a new recipe?
Sign me, NOT serving this cake anytime soon.
