Disaster struck my kitchen this morning, in the most embarrassing way.
I’m currently enrolled in a class that meets on Thursday evenings. Having class after work requires a snack, and our instructor is kind enough to realize this. Today was my day to share with everyone. So last night, I diligently set about baking pumpkin cupcakes. I figured it would be the perfect nod to the beginning of fall.
These are the easiest cupcakes in the world (read: semi-homemade) and they came together quite nicely in no time. With rather domed tops, too. I was so proud of them for baking up like that.
I frosted them with *gasp* store bought icing, which served as a fantastic reminder that I hate store bought icing.
But that’s neither here nor there. Because when I woke up this morning and peeked at my little fall treats, disaster struck…
Seriously, who messes up box-mix cupcakes with store bought icing? That’s a new low for me. I’m going the “maybe they weren’t completely cool when I frosted them and put the lid on my cupcake carrier” excuse. I tried salvaging these this morning by scraping off the old icing and starting over. I got a whopping 3 cupcakes into that project before I realized it wasn’t worth it. Store bought brownies for snack time it is!
