I just finished baking a cake. Per instructions, I switched off the oven, cracked the oven door open a bit, and let it cool for about another hour. One problem: I accidentally left the gas on. Now that I have the windows open and fans running, I'd like to concentrate on more pressing issues, namely: can I actually eat this cake? Is it going to have a weird taste? Is it going to miraculously dissipate? Should I feed it to my enemies? Please advise!
