Busy Busy Bee

Today was quite a busy day. I babysat a little boy named JJ from 10:00-2:15. And then around 2:45 a good friend of mine came over and hung out with me.

Yesterday, my mom and older brother painted my door and baseboards. So unfortunately, I had to move everything out from the wall and into the middle of the room. My room was a mess!! Books were everywhere and my toys were heaped on to my bed making a 3' high mountain. Since my room, and my brothers room still smelled like paint, we had to camp out on the living floor. Because the bathroom is still being remolded theres debris. My mom is also allergic to dust so Saturday they had to drag their mattress out into the living room as well. So last night, It like was a big slumber party with 5 people sleeping in the living room, not including Lilly and the 2 cats.
Also yesterday evening, family came over to celebrate. Its birthday time! My cousin & brother are both turning 16. They are only 2 weeks excatly apart from each other! Because my mom was busy painting, it was my job to bake the birthday cake. It was my first time baking a cake and I had no one really to help me. I finshed baking the cake and lookin good. But then it was time to frost. The white frosting ended up looking like iceing, then there wasn't enough frosting, then the cake itself started falling apart, then the cakes where falling so it was slightly lopsided, then on top of that, cakes didn't cool long enough so the frosting was slipping off. I was so upset. I wanted to be the proud baker of a beautiful cake, not a lopsided donut!! When my mom saw the cake, she laughed, and said that we have all been there. So later that day, when it was time to bring out the cake- I'm sorry, the oversized donut, I was very embaressed and explained to everyone what had happened. Being the sweet family that they are, they told me it was okay and that they had done the same thing. In the end, the donut turned out to be delicous as well as the Chinese food that we ordered.
What are your cake horror stories?

  1. I've had that happen to me. I had a cake split in half because it was too warm when I tried to take it out of the pan. Looked awful but it was still delicious.
    Sorry I missed out.
