I got the funniest "complaint"

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
from my neighbor. I have been making them cakes now for a couple of years. Last night, my neighbor complained that he wasn't getting any "cake filet" with his cakes. I couldn't figure out what the heck he was talking about so he explained.

He does not like it that I bake my cakes correctly and do not have to level them by cutting off the tops. Apparently the place he used to get cakes from would give him the cake and then a baggie filled with the scraps. He would have his own private "stash" of cake. lol!!

He did say, however, the he prefers the flavor of my cakes (obviously since they keep coming back.)

I thought it was the nicest complaint I've heard of in a while and thought I'd share.

That is the nicest complaint.....

I just think it's weird that they would give him the scraps in a baggie icon_confused.gif But, apparently that's something that he enjoyed.

Too funny

I think he asked for them one time (he's a cake addict, I think) and the owner remembered--so they just did it for him as a little treat.

Actually--he is my official taste tester for new cake ball recipes! For his birthday, I think I'm going to make a little "regular" cake and then give him a big Ziploc of "filet". lol!!

That is too funny and one of the best compliments I've heard... lol I love the "filet" part .. too funny ... and I'd do like you said, bring him some cake balls.. when you're trying out a new recipe, bring him some and ask his opinion... he's seems to not only like your cakes, but I'm sure he'd tell you if he liked a new flavor, etc. that you may be trying out icon_smile.gif

That's cute! My family gets in line for my cake scraps. . . I also freeze them in Ziplock bags, that way when anyone wants, they can get some, pop it in the microwave for a few secs and they have nice warm cake icon_biggrin.gif
Now, if you add a scoop of icecream on top of that, you have a REAL NICE TREAT, yum!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That sooooooo cute.

Could you please tell me how you get your cakes leveled without having to trim. I use the baking strips and still have to trim icon_cry.gif

I bang the pan on the counter a couple times, to get out the air bubbles. I never have to level my cakes.

Also, in addition to what Mchelle stated, you may want to try lowering the oven temp about 25 degrees.. I find this helps with mine icon_smile.gif

Me too! I'm going to try lowering the oven temp to see if that works, It was sugguested to me in another forum thread.

Now, if I lower the temp, how time do you add to your baking?
10, 20 extra minutes?

Bake all cakes @ 325. I've even tried letting it rest for about 5 minutes to let it settle before putting in oven...trim, trim, trim icon_cry.gif
