Okay, so I get the large bar pan :D Can't wait to try it....look through my new ALL THE BEST and choose the Cherry Almond roll.....I go to the store, get all my ingredients EXCEPT they didn't have the Almond Extract....okay....:rolleyes:
I get home it's Sunday, hubby is working, teenager is out w/friends and I'm HOME ALONE with doggie.....so off to work I go making this wonderfully looking Roll Cake....
I mixed it all up, got it in the oven, did the filling and thought "HEY, I'll use the imitation RUM extract....oh and why not put some VANILLA in there too?"

Hours go by.....I roll it, cool it, fill it, roll it and put it in the fridge, I trimmed it it looked GREAT....so I was testing it as DH was walking in the door, good thing I ate it first.....

Lesson? Rum and Vanilla with Almonds and Cherry IIICCCKKKK!!!!
But it LOOKED good.....:p :( ;)

Yikes! Some things you just gotta learn the hard way. Glad you tested it before you husband did. Had it been me I never would have heard the end of it! :D

I would have only used either the rum OR the vanilla

Don would have NEVER let me hear the end either.

Live & learn.

Oh all that work!

We've all made mistkes when it comes to testing a new recipe. If you ever run out of extract or can't find it, remember alcohol works too!

If you dont' have almond extract, check your liquor cabinet for Almaretto or a flavored liquor.

Don't forget to keep a record of what you've tried and what works for you. That way when your looking for recipes to make at shows, you can pull out your notes and offer what you know works. It's a terrible feeling to make something at a show that bombs!
