Guys, I need to bake a cake. Last time I made one I didn't spray the pan first because the instructions didn't tell me to do that. So after I put frosting on it it was a big delicious mess that didn't resemble a cake. I know, I know, I'm terrible at baking.
This is for my SO's birthday tomorrow and he doesn't expect me to bake a cake, so I want to surprise him and not destroy the kitchen or the cake in the process. It's black forest. Is there anything besides spraying the pan I should know about? Have you baked this cake and followed any awesome recipe online? I'm basically picking at random. It will still taste good tomorrow after being in the fridge all night, right? I don't even like cake, so I don't know at all how well they last.
What are you getting your SO for Christmas?
