The day began with a festive table runner freshly ironed, the glow
from a beloved light, a very old recipe that I was trying to rework
and a sad little cake all frosted, decorated and that no one wanted.
Truly the only thing pretty and redeeming about this little cake
was her decorative top knot-a happy and bright orange pumpkin.
It really wasn't the cakes fault, it was mine and I do apologize,
I had spent a few hours searching for a cake that utilized a cake mix,
was well suited for transportation, and one that I could decorate with
an air of festivity ( A pumpkin) wink~
After all who could resist a German chocolate cake mix infused with
chunks of ooey gooey milkyway pieces, orange frosting and of
course a top knot with a festive pumpkin?
Well of course you wouldn't or couldn't!
The trouble that I ran into, and I am filled with remorse, is that I
tried to substitute 1 (9.9 ounce) dry package of coconut-pecan
frosting mix with my homemade version.
You see, this is a quite an old recipe and unfortunately this dry
packaged frosting mix is no longer made.
Alas-my cake became the little cake that no one wanted.
However, I do console myself that my cake did have her moment of
glory with her little photo shoot and pumpkin top knot!
Wishing you all better days of baking or substitution baking and a
simple way to decorate with a pumpkin!
See you on Tuesday with another way to decorate with Pumpkins!
