What more can possibly go wrong!! (Vent!)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've been in the kitchen most of today, both cooking and baking, but it seems to me that everything I've done has gone wrong!

My white cake isn't white, it's yellow, and it wasn't baked through when I split it, I dropped a bowl of raspberry filling to the floor (think pink!), the turkey I cooked for salad for lunch tomorrow wasn't cooked through either when I cut it, the red cabbage for the same salad was rotten when I cut it and the radishes weren't too good either.
Then I attempted a loop bow for a cake tomorrow, but I hadn't made enough loops and the ones I had just wouldn't stay in place no matter what I did. icon_mad.gificon_mad.gificon_mad.gif

The drop - the one thing that almost made me lie on the floor kicking and screaming - was that my chocolate ganache curdled when I whipped it. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif I've made this recipe several times without problems, but today it just wouldn't work.

And now it smells like I've burned my dinner... I'm going to bed
There is no better therapy than baking a cake - well, perhaps eating it.

Don't ask questions like that - that's almost asking for something else to go wrong icon_wink.gif

Sorry you had such bad luck all day. Tomorrow will be better....
Hopefully you're not 'snowed in' like me...

Might try getting up on the "other side" of the bed in the morning. Good luck

Some days you just feel like asking ................ WHYYYYY ME icon_cry.gif

LOL - I console myself with the thought that if it was my neighbour she probably would have thrown the towell in by now - icon_rolleyes.gificon_wink.gif

No doubt everything you touch today will turn to gold - which just makes yesterday even more puzzling icon_confused.gif hang in there - it can only go up from here - thumbs_up.gif

OOoohhh noooo!!! Well, if it's any consolation I think we all get one those days every once in awhile. At first I chalked it to me paying my dues, time in the trenches. Now I think they are thrown my way to humble me every now and then. Doesn't make it easier though. No ma'am! Not when you are looking at that cake going "How can I salvage this!" When you know you can't. Have to rebake. Wait to cool...ugh. And the dropped filling...and the meat and veggies.... no no no!!!

Hope it's all better day 2!

At least you know that WE all understand!

But my bed is the end of a room, walled in on three sides, there is only one side I can get up on icon_wink.gif

No seriously, I went to bed in a horrible mood, but now it's monday morning and I do feel a little bit better.
I'll try to salvage the loop bow when I get home from work, and cross my fingers that the cake waiting for me at home will be a piece of cake (pun intended icon_lol.gif ) to decorate.

Thanks guys for your encouragement, what would I do without you? icon_cry.gif
