That's what we used to call a "Thoughtful Cake." One of my college roommates baked a birthday cake that turned out truly awful. "Well," said one of the other roommates, trying to be soothing, "it's the thought that counts." "In that case," said the baker, "this is the most thoughtful cake I have ever seen."
The name stuck and thereafter we called any less-than-perfect cake a "Thoughtful Cake."
