I've broken a 20-year Cake baking drought with an utter monstrosity.
My partner wanted a chocolate cake for his birthday, so I obliged.
I may or may not have needed to make an emergency supermarket trip after discovering that we were missing about 40% of the ingredients. . .
Please note that I have no idea how to do that "pretty" icing thing. I just grabbed a knife from the kitchen drawer and started slopping it on there.
Then when I was tidying up the mess I made, I saw that we had sprinkles.
In the words of The Doctor:
Um. . . yeah.
By the time I was done both the cake and the kitchen looked like a complete disaster area.
A disaster area as delicious as it is ugly.
