Friday Fails. I love a woman that can publicly admit her fails! I KNOW you know I have fails...regularly. I just don't always think about blogging them (and I host CHOCOLATE Fridays so my mind is usually on that - I have priorities you know)!
This one was just too good to pass up and I even thought to take a pic. I was making some desserts that a friend had requested and decided to add a pound cake for her as a surprise. Of course I should have baked it the night before since I had a hair appointment scheduled in the morning and the pound cake takes an hour and a half to bake. But I didn't. So I got up early - not early enough of course - and hurried to get the cake in the oven to finish before my appointment.
It finished up and I took it out of the oven. I was now running late for my hair appointment as I took too long making the cake! I was going to be gone quite a while so I wanted to get the cake out of the pan before I left. It started coming out...and then...disaster!
The cake broke into 4 - yes FOUR pieces, some tumbling onto the table and some burning my arm. And I had to leave - right then. *sigh* I put the pieces onto the rack and left. Here they are:
Didn't exactly fit my vision of presenting my friend with a nice big pound cake! Well, I needed a little consolation for this fail:
That helped - LOL!! I did rescue the fail by slicing off the damaged ends and cutting several slices which I took to my friend! My family actually liked my fail as it left several pound cake scraps for us to eat and I even froze a chunk to be a nice little bit of dessert some other time.
So I guess it doesn't pay to do things last-minute or to rush. Maybe I'll grow up someday and learn that. :)
Doesn't that make you feel better? If you like to hear other fails (so you know you're not alone - LOL), then stop by My Blessed Life for Friday Fails!
Have a fail-free day friends!
