Do Over

Fail.

Wedding Cake 101


Note to self:
When mixing a cake, during efforts to not overbeat the batter, be sure that you don't underbeat the batter. The result of underbeaten cake batter is a fallen cake. The batter must be well-beaten for the proper development of gluten which will result in a tighter structure.






That's right.
I learn something every day.
