Anyone else dread turning on their oven?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
It was at least 100 here today - I don't think our air ever shut off and it still couldn't get the house cool. I absolutely dread turning on the oven to start a cake for Saturday. And then the event (graduation party) will be outside - at least it should only be 90 that day. icon_confused.gif (have plans to have the cake at a friends house nearby so I can run and get it out of their fridge when it's cake time)

I just bit the bullet today. I volunteered to make a cake for the 4th and put it off as long as I could. It is a 3 layer (red, white & blue) and I only have 2 pans so I had to double the time the oven was on. It's not quite as hot today and I had the air conditioner running the whole time. I was happy when I finished so I could turn the oven off. I'm thankful for the air at least, would hate to bake without it. I have another cake for next weekend and hopefully it'll be a bit cooler by then. I hope your cake (and you) turned out good. Mine is 6+ inches tall and I have 15 cupcakes (had to do something with the extra batter). Happy baking thumbs_up.gif

It is the middle of winter here and I am considering baking a cake just so the house is a little warmer.

When the weather turns very hot, I bake during the night when it's the coolest.

Ugh. It didn't feel like it cooled down here much last night and the next few days will be worse. I think I'm just going to have to sweat.

Yeah, I bake at night and stick those suckers in the freezer (wrapped of course) as soon as possible.

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

Yep, record breaking heat here in Colorado Springs the past couple of weeks, plus we're on fire (well, pretty contained now, bless the firefighters). I had a cake last weekend and one this weekend and baked in the very early morning, started at around 5:30 am. the one for this weekend is in the freezer now. It's actually for my own party and I'm worried about the temp on
Saturday. Luckily, the only thing I need to do in my (non-air-conditioned) kitchen is the actual baking. Everything else is done in my air-conditioned cake room.

I just leave the kitchen and go into a cool room when I have to turn the oven on, I set a timer and return when it's done.

But I don't mind the heat in general as much as I mind the cold.

Eeek! I'm in WI - are they saying 106 now?! Just crazy. I'm surprised though - my kitchen isn't as bad as I thought it would be.

In Arizona and California we have all sorts of T-shirts with images like this one. We are giant weenies and whine a lot if it gets even a tiny bit humid.
