It was my Dad's birthday and I wanted to make him feel very special so I decided to bake a cake for him. I was not familiar with how to boil an egg back then but I was determined. I used a boxed cake mix and used a 9x13 pan. It looked great when it came out and I was ready to frost with my frosting in a can!

I didnt know you were supposed to allow the cake to completely cool before frosting it so I put a big gob of frosting on the cake and proceeded to spread it over the cake. The cake kept pulling up with each stroke, I didnt know why at the time so I kept trying, thinking I would get better at it. I pulled up half the cake and was now very frustrated but wanted this cake so badly for my dad.

My mother walked by, saw what I was doing and between laughs and giggled she told me about cooling the cake first. I got so mad at her laughing at me that I put my hand through the cake. Later, when the cake and I both cooled down my mom helped me put my cake back together and frost it. My dad didnt find out until much later what a horrible experience his cake was! Now,we all laugh about it every time we eat cake!

Yeah, trying to put frosting on a warm cake is nearly impossible.  But I bet you never forgot that step again. Wink

Good memory. Sorry that your Mom's laughing hurt your feelings when you were trying to do something special. Sometimes parents too make mistakes. I am sure she didn't want to make you feel bad.
