    It was my son's birthday yesterday and he wanted a strawberry cake. Of course, I made him one. I decided to make it marbled and had left over chocolate mix. I made two small chocolate cakes. I made the mistake of getting sugar free frosting (what is the point of that) and that thing doesn't spread easy. The cake got stuck to the mold, broke into a few pieces, I tried to put it together with frosting and it broke even more. I should leave the baking to those who know how to do it.

    Not very appealing

    I don't mean to laugh, but that birthday cake is funny. Although, I'm sure it taste good. Anything chocolate is good.

    You're one courageous lady. I don't believe I'd have told this one on myself. Can you pick one up at Walmart and garnish it with fresh strawberries? LOL

    when this happens in my family, we scoop it into small bowls, top it with ice cream and call it 'cake in a dish' - still tastes yummy!

    Laugh all you want. Jorge took the pictures because he says it maybe shouldn't be shown in public.

    No Walmart in NYC, and too late to try to rescue it, but we had a good laugh. The strawberry one turned out OK. It was only the chocolate leftover that misbehaved.

    I remember years ago when I baked a two layer cake (I love to bake and am pretty good at it) which came out great, I frosted it and set the plate aside. As I picked it up to bring to the table, it simply disolved into a pile of crumbs with frosting mixed in. My kids ate it in bowls with spoons...never waste anything you know.

    And this is how cake balls came to be... when you have a goof up, just dump the baked cake and frosting into a large bowl together. Mix well and roll into balls. Let cool or if you have time, freeze. Spear balls with toothpicks, dip into melted chocolate and let cool until chocolate hardens. Yum, Yum, can't eat just one. Works with all cakes and any type of icing.

    That sounds good enough to do on purpose!
