slicing your cake in half

slicing your cake in half

the best way i have found to slice a cake in half is to use dental floss ..slices it like butter

cake box cookie - not

cake box cookie - not

Ok what not to do. Started making the double choc. cake box cookies. I was co-pilot and my wife in the pilot's seat. Half way through I realize she has somehow combined the cake recipe and the cookie recipe. We attempted to fix - She added 3 eggs 1 cup water while I prepped the nuts, butter, vanilla and chips. I stopped her and started 'fixing'. Added just over 1/4 cup of flour as well as the other ingredients, mixed and hoped for the best. Well they are cookie shaped and soft and moist not really a cookie and too flat to be cake. But as I was eating one I had an epiphany. They would be perfect for whoopie cakes! Now I have to make some frosting.
