Cupcakes & Kitchen Kerfuffles
"The only thing that I have ever successfully made in the kitchen is a mess. And several little fires."
--Carrie Bradshaw, "Sex & the City"
We're 19 days into 2009, and already I've suffered two kitchen kerfuffles, so a third can't be far behind. First, an overflowing pear tart scorched the bottom of my oven, then Young Bandwith accidentally sent the cook-top into a coma (midnight fire, lots of water, and shorted wires); but the only way to handle kitchen fires is to jump right back into the kitchen and bake. So I'm soothing myself with homemade cupcakes.
I found the liners, dragees, and cupcake wrappers at Amazon.com
This is my goal...
However, if my Dog-pigs are any indicator, then I'll be totally flummoxed by the paper "dresses" for the cupcakes. More likely, I will scarf down the whole lot and thoroughly derail my diet.But that's the great thing about food--you can make an ugly cupcake, or dog pig, and it's still tasty.
Tomorrow, the baking begins.
