But, like all good rules, this one was perfect for breaking and my Day Zero List gave me the perfect opportunity to see how my mini-cakes would stack up against the pro's.
Sunday she was distracted by making organic dog treats even though we don't own a dog, so I took the opportunity to sneak onto the battlefield...sorry, kitchen, to throw down the cupcake gauntlet.
A few notes on making cupcakes:
2) Cupcakes are easy to make. See these simple instructions.
3) Although easy to make, decorating is hard work. Sure you can make one look good by spending 20 minutes working on it.
But then you realize there are 23 more just like it and at your current pace it will take you three weeks to decorate them all.
My foray into cupcakes was fun and I did a decent job with them before remembering that I don't even like desserts that much. That said, from now on I'll stick to frying the appetizers and leave the baking to the household pro.
