I just made a dozen chai cupcakes and I’m not going to eat any of them. Not one.
Some of the results of said speed baking
My kitchen right now.
My oops from Vanilla (welcome Spring!) on Vanilla.
While in the oven, I knew something wasn’t right, they were rising too much and the texture seemed kind of weird. I double checked the recipe and found my mistake. Now I know… this is what happens when you use baking soda (left cupcake.. oopsie) when the recipe calls for baking powder (right cupcake.. the right cupcake). Because this was a paid cupcake order, I made the cupcakes a second time, without the boo boo. The mistake cupcakes tasted totally fine so I was able to enjoy them and share some with friends (don’t worry, no wasted cupcakes in this house). I very rarely make the same recipe immediately after making a mistake, but I’m glad this happened.
What up, girl? Just hanging out with Michelle and making cupcakes.
So back in November, or maybe it was even early December, I made this video with my friend Kirsten. I wasn’t working as much, and had odd hours of the day open. Kirsten lives in the neighborhood and is also around during the day so we were hanging out, and it was great. Some CBS show was looking for non-professional bakers for a new reality thing they were casting. Now, reality shows really aren’t my thing, but I thought I had some shtuff to offer, so I figured why not? So we made a submission video…
Here’s a picture I ‘grammed (that’s a thing people say, right?) while Kirsten was shooting.
Kirsten was so great, and I had a lot of fun. We had also talked about working on some sort of video series, but haven’t gotten the ball rolling on that idea. I’m a joy in the kitchen, I promise (modest too, right?), but am not sure if it translates as entertainment for the internet.
I’ve held off on posting anything about it, in the hopes that this show would get back to me and I’d have a different thing to blog about. But they didn’t. Whatever. I don’t care. Really.
