Pssst...Yoo hoo?...Anybody there?
hiding taking a little break from the birthday cupcake assembly line.
I like to look at pretty cupcakes and of course eat pretty and scrumptious cupcakes, but an astute cupcake baker I am not. I can never seem to get the batter scooped evenly into their respective spots so Cupcake A feels superior to Cupcake E, Cupcakes LMNO tease Cupcakes PQRS about needing to lose a few pounds and poor Cupcakes XYZ look they need to eat a double cheeseburger, fries and a milk shake pronto.
And then there are the drips.
I hate drips.
(Have I ever told y'all I never make pancakes from scratch either? My poor deprived family.)
I used a mix.
(cue collective gasps of horror)
I added a package of pudding to the batter to make them more baked-from-scratch-esque-ish.
I don't think 2nd grade is too picky.
At least that's what I'm telling myself.
P.S. On a whim I called a local bakery to see how much moolah 2 dozen cupcakes might be. Any guesses? Yeah. $24.00 per dozen. Clearly I'm in the wrong business (not that I'm actually in a business or anything).
P.P.S. But, oh, yeah...the drips.
Do you make cupcakes from scratch or a mix?
What's the secret to filling the cups evenly?
How much are specialty cupcakes in your neck of the woods?
