In all my years of baking, I have slaughtered 1 cake (hurried up and trashed it). Night before I was so tired and tried to bake a sweepotatoe pie. I created something only Frakenstien would eat.

I have gotten side tracked while cooking before and ruined things. I normally remember just in time, but every once in awhile something comes out really bad. Better luck next time.

Don't feel bad. I was given a recipe for a crumb cake that I thought was the most delicious thing in the world. Well, I told my kids I was going to make it and that they would love it. Don't know what the heck I did wrong but it was a disaster. The crumb part sunk to the bottom of the batter part after I baked it. My daughter laughed me out of the kitchen. It wasen't supposed to do that. I never tried that cake again. It was a great tasty thing though when I sampled it at a party.

I've never cook one Sherlock. I would think I would have flipped that cake upside down after baking it and commenced to slicing. If it was edible they may have never known the difference.

LOL Oh dear thankfully I was not invited over for dinner. Were you absent minded. Or did you stay on my lot when cooking? I hope that next time you won't have any distractons while baking.

I know Snowy. I was just so surprised that I messed that one up, I don't use a recipe. I bake by taste. So confident I could cook it blind. I was cooking it for a neighbor who was kind enough to come down and change a flat tire for me,(hubby was at work). Well, he can't have those. Taste like taffy, and the texture too. LOL
