...but this was totally was not my fault. It was the oven's fault. Seriously. But I'll start from the beginning.
So at work tomorrow we are having a little Halloween party with a bake off. Apparently there are prizes. So I wanted to branch out of my normal boxed cake mix endeavors and bake something new. There's a fabulous blog I've been following, Eat Run Read, so I headed there for inspiration. I decided to go with the very seasonal Carmel Apple Cupcakes with Carmel Cream Cheese frosting.
The recipe seemed easy enough.
|from the surface they look fine|
|but unwrap them and not so appealing any more|
Solution: Take the salvageable ones, cut the burnt bottom off, and put it in a new cupcake wrapper. and frost. I didn't have enough ingredients (or time, or the patience) to make another batch, and I tried one - they were actually delicious. Minus the burnt bottom layer. The rest of it doesn't taste burnt.
|They don't look that bad do they?|
|my prize for 3rd place in the Halloween office bake off|
I think I have the frosting to thank for that.
I'm not domestic. But I try.
