It is the small simple things of life that bring us peace.

This was suppossed to be a Chocolate Velvet Cake.  I've made this cake numerous times; it has a load of ingredients and is a four-handed operation to make not to mention that it is a delight to eat.  This afternoon all went well until the very end.  About ten minutes before it was to be done it started to overflow the bundt pan.  Of course, I had not put a pan under it so it just overflowed into the bottom of the oven and onto the electric baking element.  There was a lot of smoke, but the smoke alarm didn't go off, thankfully!  I opened windows and pulled the overflowing pan out.  This picture is what the ill-fated dessert looked like after it cooled and collapsed into the pan.  What a mess, ugh, and worse yet no scrumptious cake for dessert! I have no clue what made it rise so much in the pan and then overflow. 
I was irritated, but what do you do?  Just accept the fact that sometimes things just don't go right.
