SPLATTED CAKE!

I AM SO UPSET!!!!!! The cake I just baked dropped!! Yes, freshly baked chocolate almond cake dropped to the floor. So wasted!! I took it out of the microwave oven and I have not even take 2 steps when the bottom of the cake gave out and the whole cake dropped to the floor and go SPLAT! DAMN DAMN DAMN! A pretty cake with lots of goody in it too!! ARGH!!! Is this a sign that I shouldn't bake another cake ever again???

Babe said I shouldn't buy cheap baking tray because I sometimes will just use those disposable aluminum ones or the metal tray that you can get for less than RM10. But the thing is, this tray is actually cost more than the usual once because it is those removable bottom with non-stick surface! The type that has a clip at the side where you unclip to loosen the side from the bottom and can actually remove the side to reveal the cake. Normally, people use this for delicate cake that you can flip over to take out the cake. I have no idea how come the bottom and the side is so loosely fit now that the bottom can actually give out eventhough I clipped it on properly already.

Sigh! I was thinking to destress by baking something instead end up I feeling upset and lost! Lost in the sense that it is wasted la! Instead of enjoying the fruit of my labour, end up cleaning up the mess made on the floor and the door mat I had in the kitchen. Only about 1/5 of the cake was salvage and the rest goes into the dustbin. I think I must shouted rather loudly too because babe's reaction was rather immediate and he came into the kitchen seeing me frozen in place and staring at the splatted cake on the floor! But come to think of it, it is kinda funny seeing him see me that way! HAHAHA! Ok, I feel much better now :P

So, I am thinking, maybe I should bake some pineapple tart instead? When we came back yesterday, in the walkway, I can actually smell someone cooking or baking something with pineapple jam. Smells really sweet and yummy! I guess that is why I decided to bake something today and since baking a cake is much less time consuming than cookies, I decided to make the chocolate almond cake. ARGGH!!! HMPF! Lesson learned, next time want to use a baking tray that can open at the bottom, must hold the tray at the bottom when carrying it. SHEESH!
