Dad is great! Made him a chocolate cake...

Well, we've had a birthday at our house and my sweet daughter, who took 4-H cooking last summer, decided to celebrate by making a chocolate cake.

So, have you ever wondered what happens when you add 1-1/2 cups of baking soda instead of 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking soda? Well, I'll never know either because when she couldn't quite eke out the last 1/2 cup and asked for help I discovered her error and was able to remove most of the extra soda. Although I obviously didn't get enough of it out...


















The end result?























Of course, the proof is in the tasting, right?


















Just think what we would have had if she'd used the whole 1-1/2 cups!

LaRinda this made me giggle. One thing for sure, your DD will learn to concentrate on measurements. Did you also teach her how to clean up the bottom of the oven? Bet the cake tasted the best.

Love it! And... I love your banner... is that new or have I just not been here in awhile? Thanks for commenting on my blog.
