The birthday was yesterday, and I made a cake that I'd been wanting to make for months. Elvis cake, a banana cake studded with chocolate chips, covered in peanut butter frosting! The cake pans, however, should have been greased and floured, which I am definitely making a note of on the recipe. So. The cakes had cooled and were ready to be turned out of their pans, or so I thought. They obviously had a mind of their own and were very attached to the pans they had been baked in, so attached that the first cake split into three pieces when I tried to get it out. One piece split the cake partially in half horizontally, and the other vertically, so it was an adventure to piece it back together.
Anyway, I now have two new cookbooks! For my birthday, The Metropolitan Bakery cookbook, which has recipes of items they sell in their bakery. The Cookie Bible is one I picked up a few days ago in the discount section at Border's, for $8!
