    I find that the best way to ice these layer cakes is to freeze each layer before icing, then crumb coat the cake in a runny icing sugar and water mixture, wait for it to set, and then coat it in buttercream or cream cheese icing. I found that out the hard way!

    I made biscuits, opened the oven when the timer went off and was overcome by this very strong chemical like smell.
    Pulled the tray out and notice I had a biscuit that was decorating in black. Hmmmm, that would be one of the brand new measuring spoons.


    Totally in love with our two beautiful little girls.

    Eek. Ive also fallen off a treadmill. The stupid safety cord failed ro stop the machine when I pulled it and my feet fell from under me, landed on my knees and the hit my forehead on the way down. I had nasty grazes and was bleeding from my forehead and my knees. I really hurt myself but dh and the other people in there thought it was hillarious can laugh at it now but ouch.

    ............................................

    My fail attempt at making an apple and rhubarb pie (for the billionth time!)

    Sooo I was making apple and rhubarb pie for dh and our house mate at the time, I didnt cook the apples enough so they were still really crunchy but the rhubarb was overcooking and burning so put it in the base thinking that they would cook more when in the oven, put too much cinnamon in and not enough sugar so it was reaaaaly bitter and just yuck. Put it in my oven, which I had cleaned the night before and almost allll of the filling spilled out into the oven. Was a huge pita to clean after that.

    Not only that but I left the stove top on, put a tea towel (that was newly gifted to us from our wedding) on it thinking it was off and it caught on fire and ruined our lovely tea towel and also burnt a plastic plate in the process.

    Our house mate was so lovely about it. He even ate the 'pie' (it was flat since it had no filling so it might as well have been a bitter tart' after dh and I told him not too. Guess he didnt want to insult me. Dh and I threw ours out. It was the worst tasting thing ive ever put in my mouth!!!

    ***************************

    I also knocked my self out when I was chasing my brother around the house on his birthday after slipping on some water, hit my head on the table, then the fridge and then hit the floor. My grandad had died the day before so when mum found me laying on the ground with my eyes rolled in the back of my head she freaked out and was in shock thinking I was dead so all she could do was hold me and cry.

    When I came to I looked up at mum who was crying hysterically and still holding me in her arm and said 'why the hell are you holding me and crying' got up and walked off all weirded out. Haha. Poor mum.

    Made a delicious stir fry / noodle type dinner. Went to season with pepper - pepper grinder opened up and spilled all the pepper corns into the stir fry I tried picking out all that I could see but I still crunched on a few while eating it. DH wouldn't eat it but I was so looking forward to it until Peppergate!
