Once, way back in high school, I was making a cake with some friends. They brought over a measuring bowl and asked me what was two cups. I looked quickly and accidently pointed to the 2 quarts. We made the cake and didn't realise the mistake until we went to put it in the pan but the batter wouldn't fit. That's when we realised what we had done, but we thought we could fix it. We set the oven to 150 degrees and poured the batter into like three pans. We tried baking them for hours, but no matter how long we left it in the oven, it came to a burnt crust over cake soup.

>_< A fun way to learn to watch your measurements and to at least have SOME idea when you're completely off XD

I think it's actually pretty difficult to mess up cookies to that extent. Maybe you're using a really bad recipe? Perhaps some sabatoge is involved?

I tried to make fried rice once. But the rice wasn't cooked before hand.
So I burnt the rice and the pan, plus the whole house smelled awful. Probably explains why I got a C for cooking that semester.

But that was 3 years ago. I have improved since then, I swear!

cooked milk, ring any bells?

And when frying blodpudding if you've made too thick pieces...
Either they dont get fried througt and through, or they get all burned ^^
It's like you try to save something that's already lost

at school we had these after school activities and I joined the desert making. We had a teacher who said that "she knew what she was doing" yeah right .
We were going to make a chocolate tart but the chocolate wouldn't melt fast enough so the teacher said: "let's put it in the microwave! that should speed it up. And don't worry about it, I'll take it out in time." :)
Well the end result was that the fire alarm went of and everyone who had afterschool activities or those who were in detention had to evacuate the school (ofcourse everyone in detention immedeatly left the school and went home). This was all due to the fact that the teacher had forgotten to watch the chocolate and had let it go on fire (still don't know how she managed to do that)
Meanwhile, I had gotten such a big laughter that I couldn't stand anymore so I was just lying on the floor off the corridor while everyone looked at me as if I was insane for laughing so hard while the fire alarm was going off

lol, I bet everyone knows what blodpudding is (translation: bloodpudding, plz note the extreme skill it takes to add the extra "o") though I promise you, it's not as bad as it sounds but you really don't want to know what it is ;)
