Want to know what happens when you forget to add water to the cake mix you are using to make cupcakes?
They don’t look too bad, right?! I was attempting to make funky tie dye looking cupcakes for a birthday party when suddenly the Destroyer, true to his name, managed to knock over my cup of water for the mix all over the counter. In all of the hustle and bustle of cleaning up, I forgot to add the water to the batter. And of course didn’t realize this until I was literally sticking the cupcakes in the oven (talk about an oh shit moment!). The fact that I only had enough batter for 12 cupcakes rather than the 24 the box mentioned should have been the big warning sign. But, hey, I’m no Betty Crocker. I honestly think the applesauce and the egg whites saved my ass majorly! Needless to say, a little frosting (from the can of course – after this disaster, I wouldn’t dare attempt homemade) and some decorator’s sugar and these were just fine – a little too sweet, but edible (and spongy). OK – gotta run – Martha Stewart is calling me.
