She devotes a section to “Turn disaster into Success!” in which she suggests some ways of coping with collapsed cake…
The cake has sunk in the centre?
Cut out the centre carefully and turn the outside into a ring cake. Ice or decorate if wished. Crumble the cake from the centre and blend with an egg. Steam for 35-40 minutes and serve as a hot pudding. Or slice the cake from the centre neatly, dip in beaten egg and fry in hot butter. Sprinkle with sugar and serve as fritters.
We just ate the cake. No bother.
And so for day 2611
