The PTO I belong to hosts a crock pot soup / salad / dessert lunch for the teachers and staff at C's school as a holiday treat.
I volunteered to bring a dessert.
What I took instead was this monstrosity of baked futility.
I used one of those new silicone baking pan gizmos, thinking I could avoid all that "greasing and flouring" the pan before pouring in the mixed ingredients.
The directions say otherwise.
I didn't bother to read the directions. I figured, "hey silicone...nothing sticks to silicone, right?"
So much for better baking through technology and it's ability to make up for ignorant mistakes made by arrogant kitchen amateurs.
A friend once told me that there's no baking accident that a jar of frosting can't hide from the consuming public.
Maybe that only applies to those who are skilled in the art of frosting application. As I am not in possession of such skills, my frosting job only seemed to exaggerate the grotesque shape of my slowly cooling baked accident.
Next time, I'm bringing a salad.
