disaster

For Easter I wanted to make chocolate cupcakes without a box! On a new favorite foodie blog I found this recipe...

I beat the butter, and the sugar.
I added the eggs one at a time, beating after each one.
I mixed all of my dry ingredients, then added it to the mixer.
It tasted SO horrible, I called Grammy in to try it.
It tasted like baking soda.
I was NOT wasting my chocolate chip cookies on the middle of these. I was going to throw them away, as fast as I could
But, grammy suggested I put these chocolate Easter eggs in them and see how they tasted cooked....

I started to smell something burning...
and I opened the oven.....

and saw that my cupcakes EXPLODED




um...ya...I guess 3/4 cup of baking soda was wrong....



Fear not I made the most tasty and cute vanilla cupcakes for Easter and they were a BIG hit...sadly they did not get their picture taken....

OH.MY.GOD! I am SO sorry! (Note to self: Proofread all recipes before posting.) It was suppose to be 3/4 tsp baking soda not cup! Yikes! I fixed the typo on my blog. Please give my condolences to your oven. :( Hope this mishap doesn't stop you from scratch baking. As you keep baking you'll be more aware if the ingredients don't add up.
