In my blog hopping I came across this picture (shown here on the left) of deliciousness and knew I had to make it – seriously, the way it’s oozing – yum! And my mom loves chocolate Turtles, so mother’s day was my excuse to make this Praline Turtle Cake from Ur Baking Me Crazy – head over there for the recipe. Below I’ll document my version, using her recipe. Beware, it’s not pretty.
First problem – I’m out of wax/parchment paper. And of course it’s late and I don’t want to run to the store. I think “eh, freezer paper is close enough, right?” – lesson learned: WRONG! You put the paper down inside of your pans then pour carmel goo on top. See, looks great:
It was delicious! Warm served with ice cream…mmmmmmmm. Bring me more!
Loved your humerous story. Sometimes our messes actually taste the best. Much better than picture perfect and nasty.
This made me laugh. Did you laugh as you messed up? or were you grumpy about it?
omg you’re making me hungry! I’m stopping by from the tues blog hop
Tried this today and it is very yummy! I made it in a rectangular pan like a sheet cake, I was too nervous to do the round pans after reading your post! My caramel didn’t seem cooked enough, but it still tasted great all together! I’d make it again which for me is the true test of a good recipe!!
this sounds fantastic!
The fabulous thing about mothers is; anything their child makes for them is beautiful. from kindergarteners gluing pop sticks to a cerial box to wonderful messes like this! lol.
I really want to bake this…
