Redeemed myself

For Wallace's birthday I attempted to make a birthday cake last Friday, but it turned out to be a dud.   For one thing, the recipe is supposed to make four individual cakes (on a rameken); it was a quick baking time which is perfect because I was meeting Wallace for dinner.  While I was preparing the cake, I realized that I only had two ramekens, but I went against my better judgement and went ahead made the cake and placed it in a round cake pan.   Well you know what happened.    It baked quickly but it was so dense.

So, last Sunday I made another cake...a chocolate raspberry layered cake.   

Lessons learned:
  1. Follow instructions to the letter, DON'T DEVIATE.  
  2. Don't rush, find plenty of time to bake.  If you're short of time, it's best not to start.
