I once put gravy granules instead of cocoa into a chocolate cake. They came in a similar-looking tub!!

Ever put a cake in the oven and forget to set the timer? <raises hand>

Ever mix pound cake and forget how many cups of flour you just put in? <raises hand>

or lost count on sugar;
cracked an egg into the sink;
gone to deal with the kids and not heard the timer;
watched your child lift the mixer out of the batter of red velvet cake while still running;

my personal best: filled the pan, realized I forgot to grease/line it; pour out batter, clean pan, refill pan and, yep, realize I yet again forgot the grease/liner. 3rd time was a charm.

I blame it all on baking with kiddos around.

I was making cookies for a road trip and was using a mix since I didn't want a whole bunch. Well, I took out a brownie mix and the cookie mix trying to decide on which to make. I didn't put the brownie mix away when I started to make the cookies. I ended up reading the instructions and adding the ingredients for the brownies into the cookie mix. It wasn't until after I started mixing it together and saw it was too runny for cookies that I realized what I had done. Luckily it was peanut butter cookies so I added some peanut butter and flour to it. They were still edible of course, but you could tell that wasn't quite the way they were supposed to taste, and I wound up with more than I planned. icon_mad.gif

I have an electric starter on my oven (no knobs to turn) it was a long night of baking, and I put the cake in the oven after preheating it, set the timer, when to go sit down, and hour and half later the timer was going off, went to pull the cake out and realized I pushed the oven button off while I was setting the timer.....So it was an even LONGER night of baking!!!
For the love of all that is sugar, flour, and eggs!

Love my life as a mother and a wife!

laughter isn't the best medicine. It's the cure.
Grabbing my bowl of faux-'nache and running from the ganache police!!

I have done this too, but first I forgot to add the eggs and wondered, as I poured it, why it was so thick! icon_lol.gif

The number of times I've cracked an egg into the sink then merrily thrown the shells into the mixer. As they are flying into the batter, I always think 'noooooo!!' but I'm too slow to turn it off in time.

Lol, gravy cake!

years ago when I first started baking I switched the amounts for the oil and water for a boxed cake mix icon_redface.gif
but that was a long time ago, and in case you were wondering, it was not at all edible !

I was making meatloaf one night and I like to add dry onion soup mix and I grabbed a white envelope from the cupboard........then when it hit the meat it turned pink I was like......what on earth!!!

I realized it was NOT onion soup mix it was weight watchers very berry smoothie mix! :YUCK!!

I once walked out to get the mail after baking 6 cakes which I left on the counter, and forgot to take the (80 lb) dog out with me. Yup, dog ate good that day.

My 80 lb lab got a double batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies one day that I left on the counter to cool. A $50 call to Animal Poison Ctrl and we now know that a dog must ingest 1 oz of PURE 100% chocolate per pound of their own weight for it to be a problem. Not even close to 80 oz. of pure choc. in the cookies, so we were safe.

We call labs garbage hounds. There's nothing they won't eat, but turkey and cake are our yellow's favorites. That doesn't mean she hasn't eaten $40, a leg of lamb, and a pecan pie - all off the counter. Those are just some of the many, many things.....!
