I say a lot of things are not 'your friend'. Those of you who know me well, will know just what i am referring to.
However, cupcakes really aren't my friend. Or maybe my OVEN isnt my friend.
I burned the first 2 dozen cupcakes. The next group, I watched like a crazy person. Everytime, I walked away from the oven for 5 mins and then went back and checked the oven thermometer that I keep in the very old oven--the temperature was 450degs, even though the oven was set at 225. What the world?? Finally, I just kept the oven door open and stood over it and watch them cook. some of them were still a little darker than I prefer. Most of the 'first batch' had to go in the trash, too bad.
Finally-about 45 cupcakes all finished up... I have attached a couple of pictures. enjoy! Some are vanilla and some are strawberry flavored. buttercream icing with fondant gerbera daisies, pink and orange (never know about the iphone pic)!
I will post a pic about my least favorite friend right now----THE OVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
