|Look at all those flavors. What could go wrong?|
Failure #1: inclemate weather cancels our plans, after the cake is made.
Excuse #2: Conveniently it's a friend's birthday the next day, perfect excuse for a cake.
Failure #2: I believe her exact words were "why can't you make anything normal?" upon hearing it was orange gingerbread. All in good friendship, she has a point. Cue whipping up single lady chocolate cake. It was, afterall, her birthday and she can cry chocolate cake if she wants to!
Excuse #3: Now I have to eat this cake so it doesn't go to waste.
|There is so much thick deliciousness in this bowl.|
|It looks more like pumpkin pudding to me|
I must say I'm surprised at how much molasses I have been able to use thus far. I certainly thought it would be in my kitchen for a long time but I think maybe one or two more rounds will finish it off. It's still winter, totally still gingerbread weather.
|I have to justify buying snowflake ramekins by using them to test new cakes|
