An Idiot Bakes a Cake

I should have known! If an idiot can do it, I'll screw it up!
I found this recipe for Chocolate Idiot Cake from David Lebovitz and thought I would try it before possibly serving it for Christmas dinner. I even ordered the glass-bottom springform pan! I tested the pan's watertightness beforehand and found that it wasn't, so I wrapped it in foil, as directed (except the foil wasn't wide enough, so I used several sheets.)
Well.. as the picture shows, I'm an idiot!
The foil wasn't watertight and I forgot to cover the pan before baking... ARGH! Although it was ugly and slightly overdone, it was very tasty and I will try again!

Pleo Joins the Family

Pleo arrived today! It is the cutest thing! I had thought of naming it Lola, but I keep calling it Pleo... It took about 3 hours to charge the battery and then the fun began! Below is a short clip of Pleo meeting our cat, Beezus. UPDATE: I've decided - Lola is her name.
