As you can see from the title, I have a disastrous story for you guys. I was going to share a recipe today, but then I started thinking who will actually bake a new recipe before Christmas? I mean, I bet all of you guys already have your menus planned out! So in the holiday spirit I have lighthearted story.
This week I was baking Christmas tree themed cupcakes for the blog. I love decorating cupcakes, and I had a great tutorial. I was making my favorite cupcakes (red velvet). It was all going so well, I had all the ingredients out ready to be added to the batter. And some how I got distracted and I forgot to add the vinegar and baking powder. I started scooping my batter into my muffin pan, put them in the oven, and seven minutes into baking I realized my big mistake. I quickly opened up the oven and did the stupidest thing possible added a sprinkle of baking soda into each muffin compartment. Now, I know what you’re thinking… are you crazy? In the moment I really thought I could salvage the cupcakes; however, as you all know that’s not what happen. When I took the cupcakes out of the oven they were spotted with brown dots and tasted awful (I don’t even know how to describe it).
Oh well, with the holidays upon us I just wanted to share a lighthearted story, and remind you little mess ups are okay. What really matters is the people you are surrounded by (did I make you cry? 🙂 ).
Merry Christmas! ❤
