let them eat...whatever

I'm pretty sure that when one is baking a cake as a loving [very belated birthday] surprise for one's husband, one should not get inordinately angry about clogged beaters, globs of butter, spattering milk, and quite unsmooth and unshiny batter. I believe I muttered FUCK in my mind at least 25 times in the ten minutes it took to whisk up this masterpiece:



We're going to eat it anyway, by God. And it will be good.

at least you didn't bake it perfectly and then drop it (in the glass baking dish) between the oven and fridge shattering the dish and RUINING the cake.

Can I lick the bowl? I'm serious.

Cami: I haven't gotten that far yet; check back later...

Cheri: Sorry, done. But the next time I try this baking nonsense, you bet.

You work all day and then come home to bake cake? So impressive.

(You should hear the muttering when I try to convert recipes to I-can-eat-it-too vegan ones. Painful and pathetic.)

It does not matter what the cake looks like. It always tastes good. I also hear that gobs of frosting hide a multitude of sins. GOBS!

I like Mrs. G's comment; I'm not going to try and improve upon perfection.

Tis a far, far better dish than mine. You saw what I pulled out of the oven the other day, right? I bet yours turned out delicioso!

Now, this is hysterical because -- of course - sounds like me! I am constantly planning complex, creative endeavors like cooking or planting or doing something with craft-like material, only to fumble and swear my way through. Great role model!
