The One with the Microwave Mess

My mom got a beautiful new baking dish that can be used to make all sorts of things in the microwave - chicken, ribs, soup, cake...

A cake in the microwave! What a fabulous idea, and in only 10 minutes!

The other day we tried to make one. It sounded so easy...

All you do is gather up the ingredients to make a boxed cake mix...


 Mix it all up, and pour it into the baking dish...


Scoop out a can of frosting on top of the mixture...


Put the lid on...


 Pop it in the microwave for 10 minutes...


Then enjoy your warm, gooey, delicious cake!

Or at least that's what should have happened.
In real life, this is what happened...

We eagerly waited for the timer to go off...


And when it did, this is what we found...


I guess we weren't supposed to put the lid on.

There was such a mess that we could lick it right out of the microwave...


Here's how the finished product turned out...


 


Not too pretty, but it tasted pretty good!
And next time, we'll leave the lid off!

Haha, I'm sorry I laughed at the mess!

It looks delish and I love the picture of everyone anxiously staring at the microwave! Too funny.

And I didn't even know it was possible to "bake" it in the microwave! Awesome. :)

Thanks for entering my giveaway, Allison! Best of luck!
