My Dog Ate My Blog Post

I tried a new cupcake recipe last night and was going to blog about it today...the White Velvet Cake recipe from The Cake Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum.  I made an 8-inch cake with some of the batter so that I could experiment on a larger scale.  The cupcakes turned out great with a delicious flavor & a very delicate crumb but dense texture (great combination).  Quick & easy to make too! 

When I make a new recipe, I usually cut the cake in half and freeze one half and wrap the other half up and leave it on the counter - just to see if the cake dries out the next day and after it has been frozen.

However...after the cake and cupcakes had been wrapped and stored in a Ziplock bag, the washing machine beeped so I left the kitchen for just a few minutes to get the clothes.  I looked up just in time to see my dog eating the cake and the cupcakes that were on the counter.  Thank goodness he can't open the freezer. 

So stay tuned.  I am going to make the recipe again tomorrow, but this time I will lock up the cupcakes and throw away the key!

Sounds like they were really good cupcakes if Summit did not have the patience to wait for your analysis. Besides, an abandoned cake is fair game! ;)
