You can’t change your taste buds mind.


So I baked a cake today….
I really FELT like cake.
You know how it is when your taste buds decide they want a certain thing, and then for whatever reason you can’t give it to them?
You know that FEELING?
Of absolute utter disappointment?
Taste buds know when they have been let down, betrayed, and they have a little tantrum….a little hissy fit. Drop the lip and have a good old sulk.
My taste buds are pouting.
Stomping their little feet and blowing raspberries!

You might ask how a person can cremate a cake as well as I?
It’s not important really.
The point is, I now have no cake, and my taste buds are clinically depressed.
I tried to appease them with an apple…and then a mandarin….I opened a packed of dates, but NO….my taste buds are demanding CAKE!
Begging for cake.
“Give us caaaaaaaake…..pleeeaaasseeeeee!”

I bet you can’t guess what that cake was SUPPOSED to be before it ended up looking like it has been in a nuclear radiation experiment gone wrong.

I guess I could use it as a doorstop…?

  1. That is one burned cake. Yep, I would be a bit ticked off as well if I were expecting to eat a nice slice of warm cake- sounds good to me to eat cake warm- just out of the oven. I just can’t eat cake. Drat,drat, drat. .

    Why Black Forest Cake, of course. πŸ˜‰

      Black bushfire cake perhaps?

      • Dan says:

        mmmm mmmmm yummy yummy yummy. πŸ˜›
        Upon closer inspection, it appears that only the top part was, ah, over cooked?
        If those were my taste buds yearning for a piece of cake, I’d have sliced the top portion off.
        You could have called it an upside-down cake minus it’s bottom. 😯 πŸ˜›

      • desertrose7 says:

        No, the bottom was just as burnt. 😦

      • Dan says:

        okay, so maybe you can’t bake a cake.
        Maybe it’s the full moon tonight, πŸ˜• but i’m reminded of a scene from the Star Trek II movie, “The Wrath of Kahn”: (from the script)

        where the rock tunnel ends. Kirk comes out of the
        tunnel, and his mouth drops open.

        SCENE 130)

        A huge cavern. Kirk is actually standing at the middle
        of it. Space extends vastly above and below his point
        of view. Like Eden, lush growth everywhere, water-
        falls, and a cobalt blue sky high, high above where a
        round orb glows sending light and warmth downward.
        There is a path from where Kirk stands down to the lower
        level where Bones, and the others are waiting and calling
        to him. Mist and haze waft gently across the cavern.

        150F BACK TO KIRK 150F

        as Carol comes up beside him.

        You did this — in a day?!

        The matrix formed in a day. The
        life forms grew later — at a
        wildly accelerated rate. Can I
        cook or can’t I?

    Hi Tracy πŸ˜€ I would either exhibit the “cake” in a local flower show vying for the BEST CAKE rosette OR sell it in a gallery for millions. Ralph xox πŸ˜€

    I am glad there are others out there too, who burn. I am actually good at baking, hardly ever burnt a cake but I burn my dinners regularly. (I did a post or two about that too) There are always shop to buy cakes if you crave it again! πŸ™‚

    • desertrose7 says:

      I can’t tell you how many pots of rice I have burned in my lifetime….Thank goodness for rice cookers these days! πŸ™‚

      • utesmile says:

        Haha it’s not just rice for me…… πŸ™‚ my children call it burnt offerings! πŸ˜€

      • desertrose7 says:

        Hey, do you turn the chicken schnitzel over to try and disguise the burnt side? (the really burnt side)
        If you do, then you’re my soul sister. lol!!!!!
        (My kids always flip it over to check.)

      • utesmile says:

        Haha, yes I have done it, but the kids are smart. ( They know us well) So I do try and scrape the black off, or leave the black carrots in the pot, and take only the top layer. Unfortunately the burnt taste is in the unburnt ones too. πŸ™‚ My challnege at the moment is one month without burning. I make it to the end of May and the champagne will flow. ……

  5. Oh you poor love – your taste buds hanging out and this was the sacrificial offering 😦 Banana cake? Scrape the black bits off – cover it with icing – no one will know the difference πŸ˜‰
