Cake fail

Coconut milk, passion fruit, whipped cream . . . how could that combination be anything other than amazing?

Sigh.  That's what I thought when I set out to make this cake.

But I either overbeat the egg whites or forgot something crucial because the cake turned out super dense, like play dough.  I made some cupcakes as well, and those turned out decent, but the cake (which was for a friend's baby shower) was near inedible.*


* Ok, by "near inedible" I mean I still ate it. But I only sort of enjoyed it.

Oh, sad! It's always so disappointing when baked goods don't turn out as planned. It sure looks cute though!

I love this "Ok, by "near inedible" I mean I still ate it. But I only sort of enjoyed it"! Ha - story of my life :)

Crazy to reconnect via Feather Factor, no? So happy to see what you've been up to post 'bee life :)

Much much love

That's too bad. Maybe your baking powder has lost its potency? I've read some places (Cook's maybe) that baking powder should be replaced annually otherwise its powers diminish. -Margaret

Maybe it was the recipe. I have come across recipes that weren't very good or left out a crucial tip. If my dish doesn't come out as expected, I check the reviews (if available) to see if it was a common thing or for any tips.

@ Margaret and Jessica: You guys are giving me too much credit. I'm pretty sure it sucked because of something I did!
