Computer and Cake

I accidentally murdered my poor computer last week by knocking over an exceptionally tall glass of water.  I immediately placed it in an airtight container full of brown rice and left it for two days.  Amazingly, it turned on!  But I soon found out that, in spite of its brightly smiling screen, half of my logic board was destroyed, and water had caused corrosion in every part of my baby.

So I write this post from my newest darling, also called a $1199 setback.

On a happier note, I followed through and made my own Mosaicake from Veggiewitch’s site.  However, I didn’t use unbleached flour, since I was trying my best to make the cake from things I already had in the cupboard.

My mom and I each filled a cake pan with pastel-colored batter.

And thank goodness, they turned out pretty darn beautiful.

My only issue is that the cakes turned out very dense, and I’m not exactly sure why.  Delicious, but not quite as light and fluffy as I was hoping.  But since this was my first time making any cake from scratch, let alone a vegan cake, I was very happy with the results.

The day after baking this cake, I killed my computer.  So this cake was the best way to console me.  7 pieces of it, to be exact.  Whoops.

The only solution for accidentally murdering your laptop.
