What do you do when you think you've gotten out of birthday cake making for the year, and your cute little newly 6 year old says, "But where's the cake, Mom?" (just before the grandparents arrive for birthday dinner?)
You make a cake.
What if the first batch of frosting comes out horrid?
You make a different batch and your daughter decorates it with candy, while you make the sauce for dinner and the kitchen is feeling insanely crazy.
What happens when you set the pan of cake on the back of the stove for the night, only to discover hours later that the burner was actually on and you almost burnt the house down? (at least I'm pretty sure that was next on the list of what would have happened that night.)
You mourn for a few minutes, let it cool, then toss it in the trash!
