Why do I even persist? All I had to do was open a box of cake mix, add water, oil & 3 eggs. Beat with the mixer for the time indicated on the box, grease Bundt Pan, pour batter in the pan, put in a pre-heated 350 oven, bake 40-45 minutes. Sounds so simple, right?

So, I thought. What could go wrong? It's not like I was making a cake from scratch. I don't know, maybe it was the early hour of the morning. It looked perfect when I removed it from the oven. But, it all went down hill from there.

I either tried to remove it from the pan too soon (not cooled off enough) or tried to frost it while still warm. Only the top half exited the pan; in trying to remove the bottom half, it all fell apart. Tried to piece it back together, like a puzzle - really did not work. And, when I attempted to put the top half back on the bottom pieces, further damage was done. Half fell on the counter, half on the plate. So, below you see the fruits of my labor. Want to know what was strange & weird about this entire debacle? It really tasted great! In the past, I've made cakes that looked great, but, tasted awful. Once I started to eat it, could not stop - ate a piece at 4:55 am, at 7:30 am, 11:30 am & 4:20 pm; along with 5 glasses of water, that is all I've had today. Needless to day, I'm as sick as a dog.

Last week, I bought a cookbook on sale for $6.98 (orig. $19.95) at Barnes & Nobles - all 5-ingredient recipes; I think I will try the savory dishes - leave the desserts alone for a bit. Especially since in 2 weeks I have gained 9 lbs.! Of course, I'm blaming that all on a Steroid Injection I had to take for my allergic rash. Yeah, right. I seriously need to buy that Bowflex Tread-Climber, now!

Yeah, "umm" is right - not going to say if I ate the rest of the cake (hint: I was even sicker Thursday & Friday). Thanks for reading.
