My cooking tragedies
That Red Velvet Cake with the cream cheese icing that has been such a beautiful success for more than forty years...went south one Christmas when we were entertaining our former exchange student and his entire family in, from Germany. Shortly after placing the icing between layers and on the top...it began to split, and eventually fall completely apart!! Three of us took spatulas and transferred it to a huge aluminum bowl I use to make dressing and large salads (thank heaven I had a place to put it!). It still tasted wonderful...but I haven't made it since!
