This post is really, really, really late. I’m sorry. Yeah, I know. Lisa and I baked this like a month ago but LISTEN, I’ve been BUSY so LEAVE ME ALONE. Plus, this baking endeavor was really tiring and it kind of made me hate every recipe that called for some cutesy twist, which led to my current stagnant bitterness over anything heart or baking related. Unfortunately, this has not affected the amount of baked goods I consume every week.
Back to the Giant Baking. Since Lisa and I have officially run out of ideas (or HAD….wait until you see what we’ve got in store next *cue dramatic music*), we decided to continue with the theme of baking-things-inside-of-things. We weren’t pleased with how the Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies turned out, but what about a heart shaped cake baked inside a regular cake? OMG SO CUTE.
Yeah, that’s now how we felt about a third of the way through. We’re renaming this recipe was “stupid cake” because of the insane number of steps, the errors in the recipes we used (people, there’s a big difference between baking soda and baking powder so please don’t confuse the two), the number of times we actually had to touch the cakes (and I have this weird thing where I don’t really like to touch food unless it’s putting a donut in my mouth) and the fact that we had to put parts of this cake in the freezer a billion times.
Seriously. If your recipe calls for putting parts of the final product inside the freezer, it is not longer considered “baking.” It is called “freezing” and therefore, should be relegated to hobbies that involve like making popsicles, ice cream or storing dead bodies.
Okay, I’ll stop complaining. Let’s go.
