Being the multi-faceted bloggers that we are, we decided to try our hand at baking this week. After eating burgers at the Sherwood Diner (this never happened, but we did consider ordering them), we were inspired to bake a Big Mac cake. We researched different recipes and finally settled on one from Women’s Day magazine. If busy moms have time to make a hamburger cake, then why wouldn’t we?
Elaheh did make a three-tiered wedding cake once, so for the record, we are not novice bakers. But somehow our hamburger cake did not resemble the picture in Women’s Day. Safe to say that we are not going to tweet this post at the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten. (in a garden?)
First of all, we’d like to issue a complaint to the mag for publishing unclear directions. We thought that two boxes of cake mix yielded two 9-inch rounds, but when assembling the burger we noticed that we were missing the top bun. Seriously, what’s a bowl cake?
We also took some creative liberties by opting for a yellow cake mix when the recipe called for a pound cake mix. Another factor that contributed to the disaster that came out of the oven could’ve been Justin Bieber softly crooning in the kitchen. *
*Justin Bieber wasn’t actually with us (or was he?). His songs were just on repeat.
In conclusion, a waste of time and resources.
Things that keep us up at night:
- Tara Lipinski’s guest roles on 7th Heaven
- Either you’re a doctor or you’re not.
- When Alyssa is 50, her resume will still say that she majored in Science in Society.
- What do Pippa Middleton and Michael Jackson have in common? We’re not really sure either.
- How many times do you have to tweet at Tahj Mowry to get him to retweet?
