I need to post this before I go running out into the street screaming like a banshee and get myself arrested.
Worked on a chocolate cake this afternoon, expensive ingredients, time consuming process, but worth it as it's a lovely cake.
Been in the oven and not quite there yet. 2 sandwich tins on the same shelf, so I thought why not change them over (move the back one to the front etc) since it's hotter at the back. I move the shelf out a bit for better access, start moving them around and push one of them right off the back of the bl**dy rack onto the bottom of the oven! They are still a bit liquid inside so the cake is ruined and the oven is covered with liquid batter.
I can't believe I did it. I managed the whole thing up until then with 2 whining children under my feet and have nothing to show for it. Now I know how Danny must have felt when she dropped her puddings all over her feet in the GBBO. At least I didn't do it on national TV...
Well, I've made another one so hopefully nothing will happen to it between icing and delivery! It took ages to clean all the batter off the oven, but at least I it's sparkling now. A lesson learnt I suppose. Thanks for the sympathy guys!
