In the last update, I said I would ditch the chocolate chips, and I think that it was a wise decision. I also didn't bother measuring the amount of vanilla, as I am getting more comfortable with liquids and how much to pour for various amounts. Huzzah for experience! It was a tad bit dry, though. Not entirely certain how to fix that.
Another thing that I am trying to figure out is how to make a rainbow cake-in-a-mug, as that would just be too cool for school. I think the best way for me to figure that out would be to compare yellow cake recipes to chocolate cake recipes, and from there to the cake-in-a-mug, so I can see what to change and by how much. I think it would be a super-nifty thing to make.
Anyway, I need to get back to hacking out a short story. I don't write those often enough. Goodnight everybody, and stay safe out there.
