It is the beginnings of a cake for a birthday. I needed to bake a second batch for this particular creation, and decided to try a different approach from my usual one of filling in the craters with icing (which is kind of nasty to eat, IMO). So I made two cake batter "cookies" approximately the size of the holes.Here they are in place prior to being frosted:
It was all worth it for that, right?
And there isn't a picture of it after it was cut, but if you didn't know, you wouldn't even notice that anything had ever been amiss!
