These are your cupcakes....

These are your cupcakes on drugs....

Any questions?

See, what happened was - I was making cupcakes. Lemon cupcakes. Lemon cupcakes for the teachers at the boy's school. That same night I was also making cornbread and finishing up the cake pops and well... there was a lot going on in the kitchen and I grabbed the pancake mix instead of the flour. It can happen to anyone, right?

Especially when you keep you flour and pancake mix in identical containers

See what I mean?

Luckily, Maxo noticed what I was doing 1/2 way into the recipe - so it wasn't ALL pancake mix, but there was enough extra leavening in the batter that some of the cupcakes 'sploded.

But the ones that didn't were DELISH! Super light and tasty. Max thinks were onto something with this and wants to experiment with more flour-to-pancake mix ratios. Maybe topped with maple-flavored frosting and bacon sprinkles?

I'd been practicing the flowers that we'll be making in Wilton Course 2 - and oh are they pretty and fun to make! I topped each of the intact cupcakes with a single blossom and made a garden of treats.

Flower roll call:






Apple Blossom




  1. nice to know even someone with your talent can screw up... the end result,however, perfection

  2. Hilarious.
