I’m a Pinterest addict and every day I see hundreds of photos of food that I want to make. I dream of creating a Pinterest worthy masterpiece. Then pin the recipe on Pinterest and have it go viral because it is the most awesomest (not a word…I know) recipe ever.
Making a Pinterest Worthy Cake
You start with a chocolate cake in a box and ingredients.
Prepare according to the directions.
Ask your daughter to help if you need to take photos.
Then you decide that your daughter’s birthday cake needed a little surprise. You search through the cupboards and find chocolate chips.
Perfect. Throw then into the cake mix.
Stir until you don’t see the powdery mix anymore.
Spray a cake pan with the stuff that makes it not stick.
Pour the mixed batter into the pan.
Bake per the box directions.
When the timer goes off, stick a toothpick in the cake to be sure it’s done. (It’s done if there is no gooey stuff on the toothpick.)
Yay! It’s done. So far so good!
Frosting A Pinterest Worthy Cake
Remember that the cake should cool completely before attempting to frost. Open the store-bought frosting preferably in a hot pink color and use a knife to spread the frosting on the cake. Next, the frosting will pull the top layer of the cake off, so it will look something like this:
Call a friend who knows more about baking and ask them how to frost a cake. Friend will tell you that you frost the bottom of the cake. Turn it upside down and frost the bottom? Ok. If you say so.
Hmmm. Now we have 2 sides frosted. Neither side looks good.
Try to put the cake back in the pan so that you can at least eat it.
Officially call it a #PinterestFail and go buy a cake.
Of course it wouldn’t be a cake unless you add your own touch. Hot pink sparkles. Happy 15th Birthday Sami!
That is how you make a Pinterest worthy cake a.k.a. #PinterestFail! Tell me about your Pinterest fails.
No cakes were harmed during the making of this cake.
