Sour cream banana cake is a wonderful accompaniment to crazy behavior discussions in general, not just resignations gone awry. Bananas set the stage for the impending shenanigans and then a boozy brandy glaze and chocolate were added to make it even less business appropriate. It’s frosted with lightly sweetened whipped cream to make the cake look innocent of any wrongdoing but we all know better.

 

Cue Bon Jovi, ‘cause you’re going out in a blaze of glory.

 

The deceptively humble muffin is an excellent choice for a lesson in being underestimated. Nonchalant on the exterior but buttery, cakelike and bursting with the dynamic flavor combo of your choice on the inside, this recipe is for a delightful cake in disguise. You may be a little muffin today, but you are on your way to splendid notoriety and nothing can stop you. Except over-mixing the batter (which will only prolong the misperception about your prowess, baking or otherwise) as rubber, while awesome for tires, is an unpleasant consistency for cake.

So, you’ve been underestimated and overlooked. It happens to everyone but that is no solace to your smarting feelings. It sucks; however, by tapping into the craftier part of your personality you can find the advantage in the situation…in every situation really.
