The cake store woman said it was easy....

In a moment of insanity, I decided to bake the cake for little boy's birthday tomorrow. A cake with fondant, no less. Damn! What have I gotten myself into? I can't bake. I've messed up slice and back cookies before.

Within the past half hour, I've googled "how to line a circle pan with parchment paper" and "which kitchenaid mixer attachment should I use for cake".

The cake is in the oven now. This post is keeping me from peeking and compromising the heat distribution of my oven. I'm on pins and needles.

Sometimes, I wish I was the mom who would plan a party at a park with grocery store cupcakes and a bag of balls and be done with it. I'm not that person. Sadly, I will never be that person.

Stay tuned....


  1. Um, you usually call me with these kinds of questions. Where's the love?

  2. S&S...sorry I ditched you. Good news...layer one successfully came out of pan.
