The Lights Go Out!!!!!

This is what it looked like when the power went out!

I  recently experienced another casualty while making cupcakes.  At school, the 5th grade was putting together a carnival for the rest of the school.  One of the things I had to bring was cupcakes. 

It was the night before the carnival and the only time I had to make my cupcakes.  I got the batter ready and then all of the sudden, the power went out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We had a phone that we can use when the power goes out and we called the people that are in charge of the power and they said it would not be back on until nine o'clock.  It ended up that it didn't come back on until 11 o'clock.

My caring mother, at one o'clock in the morning wakes up, bakes the cupcakes, and cools them for me.  Thanks to my mother, everything turned out great.

My Accident with Cupcakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was making my second batch of cupcakes, by myself I might add, and I was reading the recipe and then a little word threw me for a loop. So I told my mom that I accidentally used baking powder instead of baking soda. Because my mom would not let me quintuple the recipe, I had to make biscuits instead of the chocolate cupcakes I was planning on.

After I made the biscuits I started over. I was doing just fine until it came to the cocoa. I had to open a new pack and I was pouring it into the 2/3 cup and then I dropped it and got cocoa all over!!!!!!!!!!! I quickly cleaned it up but my mom saw all of it in the garbage can. She did not yell at me, that dearest mother of mine, but she told me to be more careful next time and do not pour it in there, but scoop it up.

I eventually made those wonderful chocolate cupcakes and my, my they were delicious. HERE is that basic chocolate cupcake recipe. Tips: Use baking soda, not baking powder. Also, scoop the cocoa.

Why My Life is Like a Cupcake

I got a cupcake recipe book and that is what started this idea for my blog. I figured my life is kind of like a cupcake: mostly sweet but sometimes a little burnt.

I will be posting as much as my school work allows and then when school gets out in 2 weeks, I will be posting more. I hope you enjoy!
