Cake supply less, I've been scheming about when I will have enough money to buy myself cake pans, carriers and cooling racks. Then today, I remembered what happened when I got the urge to bake bread. I went to the Dollar Tree for foil bread pans and ended up finding real bread pans for a dollar. Off to the Dollar Tree I went, and what do you know. Cake pans, carriers, and cooling racks. Nothing that will last a lifetime, but a great way to see if I actually like this and will do it often enough to warrant spending real money on it.
$4 in equipment later, we have lemon cake!
Well, two actually but the second one looked like this.
And then this....
And I was thinking, well, once I stack them, frosting will hide a multitude of sins.
But then I remembered that I live at my house, and we do not keep milk on hand. Did I mention I decided to start this project at 9 pm? I decided to wait to make the frosting after a grocery store trip. At this point, I still had hopes for a pretty stacked cake tomorrow. Then my husband wanted some, so I cut the bottom off. Then I decided to try to flip them and the mangled one fell apart.
Along with my dream.
The cake and a 1/2 are now in my dollar store carrier ( totally not trusting that handle btw) and I will attempt to make frosting tomorrow.

Caption: Noooooo I don't like pictures!
Caption: Must escape clutches......
Caption: Why don't they love me anymore?
Caption: Maybe if I ignore them they will go away.
