Hmmmm, sometimes even a normally good baker person can have a disaster in the kitchen. I am on a quest to make the perfect yellow cupcake. The one I made tonight….wellllllllll, not so perfect. They came out of the oven looking so heavenly…puffy, the perfect domed top, nice color…..ahhhhhh, smelling all nice and vanilla-ish. I left my pretty little babies to cool off for a bit. It hadn’t even been 10 minutes and when I went to check on them, this is what I found:
Ugliness…..ugly little babies…shriveled….wrinkly….shrunken…..I have no idea what happened. Amazingly, they taste really good. They have a nice texture, not too sweet. But I sure wonder what could have happened. Big sigh….I will try another recipe tomorrow.
I just had this happen to me. Did you figure out what happened so it doesn’t happen to me again?
Hi Wendy. I did try it again and had the same thing happen. I used super fresh ingredients, and did everything right. The same thing happened again so I tossed the recipe. I hate that I wasted all those ingredients. Sorry to hear it happened to you too.
thanks for all the comments folks. haahahaha. a friend of mine called me today and said “what the hell were those??” hahahhaahahah.
Betty Betty Betty ha ha ha !!!
Just load them up with frosting. Nobody will ever know!!
Hey, even Julia Childs screwed up once in a while. You’re still batting .990!
I’M SURE THE WRINKLES DON’T TAKE AWAY FROM THE TASTE.
I suggest a glass of wine! There’s always another day to perfect the yellow cupcake.
