I made a spiced cake and was so excited. Since it was the first time I was using that recipe, I didn't know what to expect. When I put it in the pan, it only came up 2/3 of the way but I figured it would rise. Nope! And it did not cook evenly so even though part of it was done, the center was still gooey. This is what ended up happening when I took it out of the pan. As a girl who prides herself as a proficient baker, I was disappointed, but grateful that we were just going to be covering it with candy anyways.
We decorated some sugar cones to act as trees for the house's landscape. Miller decorated one, and ate another.
All of this decorating has caused a few extra baths lately.
The end product. Not perfect but it is cute.
We used it as the centerpiece for our party the next day.
Lessons were learned and we will revisit this next year.
