Why does this happen to me? I made Edgar’s rum cake. But I used the fucking bundt pan and it was prepped it should have leapt out of the pan but no. OK, well some of it did. Half of the cake stayed in the pan. Why? I let it rest overnight upside down and what?! The goddam thing came apart. I patched it together and then did a crumb layer and re-frosted it (and added almonds as a distraction from its less than perfect appearance). It was exquisite, that butter-rum soaking liquid is amazing.
But what a damn nightmare. I hate frosting cakes and frosting injured cakes is more than I can deal with. I know what the problem is. It’s me. I just don’t know how to solve it.
