When I was growing up, I was always told that it was better to give than to receive. I was reminded of that in #church this morning. That is why I share what I bake with others. It isn't always about the money, it's about #giving to others. I enjoy doing that. So today, I am sharing my 2 #layer #cake with the world. As always, I got this amazing recipe from Sally's Bake Blog.

This cake was originally supposed to be a 3 layer cake. I didn't have 3 round cake pans of the same size, I had two 8 inch round pans and bought a third one at JoAnn's fabrics. It turned out that I didn't need that third pan after all, but I used it anyway. I made the cake according to Sally's white cake recipe and poured the batter into all three pans. I put all three pans into the oven to bake. When the time came to take the cakes out of the oven, I noticed that one of the layers did not bake right. I should have returned it to the oven, but I didn't. That is how I ended up with just 2 layers for this cake. It still turned out great and I got to share it with my coworkers at the library.

I learn something every time I bake. This time I learned that my oven bakes better from the back and that I shouldn't put three layers in the oven at once. I am also trying some new things with food photography as well, making patterns with food. I know we aren't supposed to play with our food, but in food photography that is what we do. LOL

Tell me what you learned when you tried baking this cake.
