Melting cupcakes


I decided that I haven't gained enough weight lately, so I thought it might be a good idea to make something else that would help in this endeavor... funfetti cupcakes. Yes, with strawberry icing. Yummy! Really, I am just trying to put on sympathy weight for Pam, but I think I may have gained more weight than she has, and in a few weeks, she's gonna have something to show for hers! Me, I'll just have a bruised ego when I am done. But, I digress.

I ran out of batter about 4 empty cupie cakes early. My mothers voice was screaming its usual warning in my head (just like it did when I was a kid) to make sure that I filled up the empty cakemolds with water for an even bake. When finished the cakes looked like this:


Yes, you will note the rust in my el cheap-o cupcake pan. Well, Braxton comes in a few hours later and screams, "MOM!!! Hurry come here!!! The Cupcakes melted!!!"

I did not try to explain to him what had happened, but instead grabbed my camera to promptly take a picture. I knew that was indeed, a bloggable moment. Come to think of it, I still don't think he knows that the secret to evenly baked goods is a little water in the empty cupcake molds.
