I am posting this totally under duress. I AM a good baker. People always love my cakes. In fact they request my cakes at work. I used to bake a cake for all of my employees birthdays and they would eat every crumb. Why am I telling you all of this? Because Tuesday was my son's 26th birthday and he wanted a butter cake with mini chocolate chips in it. Easy peasy right? Not! When I tried to get the cake out of the pans, the chocolate chips had settled to the bottom and were stuck. I have used chocolate chips in cakes a zillion times with no problems, but maybe since I used butter instead of cooking oil. I don't really know what happened, but here is what his cake looked like after I got it out of the pan.
Does anyone want me to make their wedding cake for them??? hahaha
