SOS

Well, it's Daring Baker time, and I attempted the challenge but it was a BIG fail!  The April 2011 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Evelyne of the blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz. Evelyne chose to challenge everyone to make a maple mousse in an edible container. Prizes are being awarded to the most creative edible container and filling, so vote on your favorite from April 27th to May 27th at http://thedaringkitchen.com/!  Well, my plan was to make little angelfood cake containers, put the mousse in, add an "egg" to the top and have little Easter baskets.  WEEEELLLL, first the angelfood burned.  I don't know what the deal was because the middle of the cake was fine but the outside was TOTALLY burned.  Okay, containers...ruined.  I could come up with something else.  Next, I made the mousse...or tried.  I decided to make the version with tofu.  Let's just say, it's still in my refrigerator and after sitting there for 48 hours, it's still soup!  Oh, well...I guess with having done so many challenges for this to be the first complete failure is pretty good!  Stop by the above link to find other BEAUTIFULLY SUCCESSFUL mousses!

Sorry about the mouse mess and the burnt cake. I had a total kitchen flop this week as well with a weird pasty and dense strawberry layer cake. It was gross.

Ahhh I think we all have those F U moments in the kitchen every once in a while...in fact, I had a major one this weekend in which I baked a triple layer cake only to have all the cakes break when I tried to invert them. Sigh.

I'm gonna have to say I hate tofu.

Sorry about your angel food cake.

Most of my bad outcomes usually come from burning stuff on the stove because I underestimate the power of electric stovetops... Sorry that your Easter baskets didn't come out well! :(
