This how I felt...
I kept working at it and somehow I came up with a sleeve. It's not done exactly like the pattern but it will work. One sleeve done and one more to go. I will put up pictures of it in a latter post.
Next I need to salvage the ski slope aka pineapple cake. I cut the cake in half. The better half is placed on a cake plate and served with whipped cream. The ski slope half wrapped and frozen for latter use. It will probably toasted for a cake crumb topping for ice cream or for a fruit cobbler. Nothing will go to waste.
I will keep working on the pineapple cake recipe until it comes out right. Not sure what went wrong but I will figure it out.
If at first you don't succeed try, try again!
This is Life as I know it...
