faulty product, faulty user?

I just got back from a fantastic long weekend in minneapolis and needed to update with this delicious chocolate hazelnut cake that carrie, andrew, and I took on. Carrie and I bought matching spring form pans and had to put one to the test with this cake. when we entered the kitchen in the final minutes of baking we entered a smoke filled room due to a slight butter leak out of the pan. This certainly could not have been anything we did wrong so it must have been a faulty pan.......later on we happened to take a peak at the directions again to realize we added 1 cup of butter instead of 3/4 cup and 12oz of chocolate opposed to 10oz. It was still tasty (I don't know that too much butter or chocolate has ever been a completely horrible thing), and we were only slightly embarrassed when we transferred the cake to a paper plate to bring to a party and by the time we got there the plate was soaked with butter.
