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!
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...
