As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around
1am MIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
While I'm sure you make a mean cake and have a good recipe, I am not exactly looking for the perfect cake. I am trying to recreate something my mom used to make for me. I'll be using boxed cake mix (I don't care if it's worse, shaddup!) and premade icing.
I am just looking for general 'everyone already knows these things, you idiot' tips. Follow the directions on the box and be careful for... what?
What are common baking mistakes?
Is the 'toothpick test' accurate?
How do I make it not lopsided?
