**Okay...so maybe not a 'baking FAIL', but definitely a baking giggle.**
In my attempt to do something Valentiney for my students today (and then later, for the men in this house on Sunday), I went to my handy-dandy cake site and found where someone had made heart shaped cupcakes....without investing in an expensive pan.
Yes, folks, this lady went on and on about how easy it was to do...all you had to do was put a marble (or a balled up piece of aluminum foil) between the cupcake paper and the tin....while baking it would keep the tin from being a complete circle, thus making "the perfect heart shaped cupcake".
You know...if you tilt your head to the left a little? They kind of look like little Packmen attacking those evil marbles!!
Everyone got a chuckle from these....I do believe that they might look right if a) I fill up the tins higher with batter next time and b) I actually get them frosted.
Goofy looking cupcakes did not deter the boys in my family from snarfing them down...so I'm assuming they were good. I might actually try this again....you know...'cause now, those perfect ones? Yeah. They are just mocking me.
**Grabbing something quick because I forgot to actually eat breakfast this morning.**
