Default I learned something today

Last night my 11 year old daughter begged to make a cake, from a mix, until I gave in. The resulting cake was extremely crummy, it wouldn't hold together at all. She denied leaving anything out, even re-read the instructions to me off the box. Today I went to get some eggs out of the refrigerator and noticed the entire dozen that I bought earlier in the week was still there. Ergo, she didn't put any eggs in the cake.

The cake tasted fine, it just dissolved into a mess of crumbs when touched with a fork. In a moment of inspiration, I tossed the whole thing in the freezer this afternoon and, tonight, when the kids asked what was for dessert, I pulled out the cake. It stayed together perfectly fine when frozen.

It's amazing how we can salvage something - especially a dessert! Thanks for the tip.

My trio has a tendency to turn everything into a mess of crumbs anyway- so this might just be the perfect recipe for me!

We don't usually forget the eggs since that is the only thing DD actually likes to do when we make a cake. Have to stop her from trying to crack all 12 into the bowl. This is one of those bits of information that will float in my brain and be a saving grace later on in life so thanks!
