Right now, in my trash can are one batch of macarons and not one, but TWO failed orange cakes. Argh! I have only ingredients and time enough to make one more cake (no, I’m not wasting time by typing this, I’m waiting for the butter to come to room temperature) before I’m meant to be at my friend’s house, tasty treats in hand.
ETA: Uh, note to self: If a recipe calls for a 9-inch round cake pan, DO NOT use an 8-inch round cake pan. NOT COOL.
