Last night, while Dan was rocking Jonah, I got the bright idea to make a HOMEMADE pound cake with HOMEMADE cream cheese icing. Paula Dean made it on Oprah yesterday and claimed it was very easy. So, I attempted it. Now, keep in mind that I have never made any cake from scratch. All the cakes I had made in the past involved a box of cake mix!!! I actually had to sift flour!! Me....sifting flour! Wow! So, I get the cake out of the oven and it looked rather odd! It looked even worse when I flipped it onto the plate! Look!!!
It was TERRIBLE! It looked bad and tasted even worse! I put it on the floor for Max and he wouldn't even eat it. That is bad!!!
Come to find out, when a recipe calls for all-purpose flour, you should really use that! Not self-rising! Apparently, everyone in America knew that but me! Oh well...at least the icing came out right. I just didn't have anything to put it on!!!
