Not a Piece of Cake!

"Seriously Mom. How hard can it be?"

I don't know what's wrong with me, but I cannot make cupcakes! Yesterday the Valentine Fairy (my sweet mother-in-law) left one of her many Valentine-y gifts on the doorstep -- Valentine cupcake papers. So Millie and I went to work making cupcakes. I make cakes from scratch all of the time (OK not all of the time but at least several times a year for birthdays) and they turn out just fine but unfortunately the few times I've tried to make cupcakes they turn out like this:
What a mess! Perhaps the next time I attempt to make cupcakes, I'll go buy a mix; something Mark and I never use since it's cheaper and somewhat healthier to make goods from scratch. However this experience wasn't a total waste. I learned that my little gravy ladle is excellent for pouring cake batter into cupcake papers.

That is a funny pic. IT goes so well with the caption. Sorry about the cupcakes.

I talked to the Valentine Fairy this morning and she was just getting something out of the shed. It wasn't her really.

Muffins, maybe? Love the valentine glasses and Ivy.

That was a sad and hilarious story. Maybe they were too full? Im not really a cupcake expert, so I really have no idea. I am impressed that you don't use a mix though.

Are Ivy's glasses from Brad and Diane? I love them!
