Ugly Mess

You know that lovely heart cake that I make for weddings, anniversaries, Valentine's day? Occasionally, I make the same cake in a round pan for special birthdays.

Today, I didn't let the ganache cool enough before I poured it on. While I was looking away, it melted the buttercream filling and both the filling and the ganache slid right off the cake. It's even worse than the photo. That's just one side of it. I laughed on the outside, but I cried on the inside.

I need to get busy making another dessert. I am NOT serving this tonight!

Just spoon it into a bowl nd put a little ice cream or whipped ram on it. It will be delicious!

I know how you feel. I hate having disasters like that.

How did the alternative dessert work out?

I agree with Nanaj: Ice cream or whipped cream will make it all better!

Heck put it in layers in a pretty glass and call it a "trifle".

Let them eat cake, I say.

Cake looks delicious!

I am writing to inform you about Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to help end childhood hunger by having a bake sale in their community. Now in its’ fourth year, over 1 million people have participated in the campaign to aid the 12 million children in America who are at risk of hunger. The campaign, which runs through August, was recently promoted by celebrity chef Rachael Ray on ABC.

Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale offers a unique way for you to connect with your readers about the severity of childhood hunger in America while providing them with a simple and fun way of how they can fight it. Perhaps you can include information about the campaign in a section of this blog?
