I’ve been baking all day today. Happily coated in flour, with chocolate underneath my fingernails, baking for Craig’s hungry troops. Since I’m new to the whole shipping baked goods overseas scene, I did a little research and learned that pound cake, because it’s dense and sturdy, ships very well.
So, I made pound cake.
Nutella Swirl Pound cake.
Looks good, right?
It DID look good; it looked great, in fact. That is, however, until I removed it from the pan.
And this was after I burned my first batch of biscotti.
Today has not been a good day.
We made an emergency trip to the grocery store for more butter and eggs. I’m ready to tackle pound cake again tomorrow, but this time I’m going with something a bit more simple: vanilla.
I hope I’ll have better luck.
I may have had my share of disasters today, but at least my second batch of biscotti turned out better.
I’ll report back if it was a success.
