Ugly Cake

Maybe you didn't believe me, but I did warn you that I wasn't a fancy baker...

I tried to "fix" the spots where my cake stuck and ripped off in the bundt pan with frosting that closely resembles a Pepto color (But what color frosting does go with yellow cake??? I know your easy answer is white, but my frosting turned more brownish from the vanilla extract. Maybe tan frosting was the lesser evil.). And my frosting doesn't look very smooth. Oh, man! Then I tried to fix it more with ice crystals. Now it just looks like someone puked all over my cake. AND I'm supposed to bring a dessert to a church dinner TONIGHT in 2 hours! Should I bring it anyhow? Can I sneak it in without anyone knowing it is my horrendous creation? But what if no one takes a slice because it's so ugly and scary? Will I claim it at the end and take it home? I'm thinking my pride may take a serious beating tonight...

Maybe this can be my signature dessert and scheme though...set the bar really low visually and no one will expect any thing better then we get to eat all the yummy leftovers ourselves. I know the cake is good because we ate all the chunks out of the bundt pan dabbed with frosting. The boys apparently don't care what it looks like. They are begging me for a piece as I type.

It doesnt look too bad. For future reference the pam spray stuff with flour in it is good for bundt pans.
