My First Bundt

This morning, I began prepping for tomorrow's festivities by baking a couple bundts. The second one - an Apple Cake - is still in the oven. The first one - a lemon poppy cake - is right here. I learned a few things along the way.

#1 - When attempting to make icing, only a little water is needed. When too much water is incorporated into the powdered sugar, it becomes too liquidy.
When attempting to reduce the liquid in a sauce pan, it eventually turns into a very thick mixture that, when cooled, becomes candy.

#2 - Said candy retains an incredible amount of heat, and is terribly hot to the touch.
I learned that the hard way.
