A disaster - Zebra cake

Seeing a lot of Zebra cakes on various blogs, I was inspired to make one..but decided to go for a shortcut by using the pillsbury cooker cake mix..I prepared the batter and divided the batter into two - half vanilla and half chocolate..Everything went on well, I could form the layers also to some extent..There went my cake in the cooker and an over-excited me went on checking if it is ready every few minutes. Finally I decide to invert it into a tray and cut it hurriedly to see how the cake has turned out..I should have been a little more patient in ensuring that the cake is well cooked and to cut it after it cools down..The result- the cake was uncooked in the center and the pieces were uneven and different shapes as the uncooked portions had to be thrown out..Check out the pics that I never uploaded to the blog thinking that some day I would make it again.


Apart from this, once I went on to a nearby temple and returned back after about 40 minutes only to see my ladiesfinger curry burnt completely in the kadai as I forgot to switch off the gas..The most recent was of not switching off the stove with the dosa tava on it after making dosas in the morning. After almost an hour when I went to take some biscuits, I found the place close to the stove very hot only to realise my mistake..After every such event, I am alert for about a month and keep checking often if the stove is switched off..

Sending these mishaps over to Malar for her Kitchen Mishaps events.

Looking at the picture, I was wondering...wow cake looks perfect' what wud have gone wrong. Sure...everyone has encountered such issues on regular basis. I have several mishaps in my kitchen fried pan, burnt tawa, appliance tragedies, fire accident..you name it. You're not alone. This event's motive is to laugh and learn...bottom line is 'don't give up'.:)
