No, they're not Brigget's; they're at a place called Northwest Trek.
Then you need to decide what cake you want to bake. Lemon? Okay. Grab the cake box. Carefully read the directions on the back so you know how many eggs and how much oil you'll be needing.
Lemon cake mix. Yummy!
You'll need to grab a cake pan; be careful not to drop your camera as you reach for it. You'll also want to get a bowl.
Oh...sorry. Darling says not a bowl with holes in it.
There, that's a better bowl. If you're up for the challenge, leave a few of the things from dinner out on the counter. They create a bit of clutter, but add to the color, making it seem cheerier. I wouldn't recommend this to first time cake mixers, though, as you may confuse the mustard for oil or the pickles for eggs...not a good thing.
Empty contents of cake mix package into the bowl. The bowl without the holes. Measure and add oil (below.)
Carefully crack eggs, avoiding getting egg shells in your batter mix. If you do, don't sweat it; just tell you family it's a good calcium supplement.
Doesn't Darling do good work?
Now, mix it all together. Darling tells me this is why it's important not to have holes in your bowl, or your batter mix may seep out. Okay. I'll try to remember that. But no guarantees (hey, this is getting way too complicated for me!)
Carefully pour your batter into the pan. You may need three hands for this, as the bowl full of batter is heavy. Once you've got it into the pan, you should realize you've got the wrong size pan and you need to grab the other one.
Transfer batter to second pan.
I forgot to tell you to preheat the oven. If you forgot you had to do that, this would be a good time to turn it on. Since Darling has her back turned to turn on the oven, now would be a good time to sneak a bit of the batter and lick your finger.
Once the oven has preheated, you'll want to put your cake into it. There are likely directions telling you how long to leave your cake in for. Don't bother. You'll be able to tell if you've over baked it by the smokey smell and the smoke detectors going off. I'd post pictures, but in the heat of the moment, the camera was rather forgotten in an effort to save the kitchen.
Let's just say we won't have to worry about this being The. Best. Cake.Ever!
