Now I know that I have never ever claimed to be anything but awful at baking cakes. However this Friday I have utterly utterly outdone myself. I wasn't actually going to mention the cake at all today, instead I was going to whitter on about my retro Royal wedding feast, but this cake disaster overtook even my coronation prawn volovants.
It all started out well, until I was so foolish as to tweet that I had the whole cake thing under control and it was looking like that rare event... A Mummy Win.
Then I took the cake out of the oven and turned it out onto the cooling rack. It became immediately obvious that the inside of the cake was still LIQUID. Mainly because the LIQUID part was leaking across the benchtop and into the pots and pans cupboard.
So, thinking quickly, I flipped the cakes back into their pans and shoved them back in the oven.
I ended up with this
|Twice baked sponge|
|No one will notice|
|The Royal Wedding Feast|
I went for a retro UK street party menu which included coronation prawn volovants, sausage rolls, egg, cucumber and smoked salmon sandwiches, champagne and of course the caramelised twice baked sponge.
And yes, I ended up with a scorching case of indigestion.
