FALL, CUPCAKES & BAKING...

DO YOU WANT TO HEAR MY DAY TODAY??? 

WELL, IT STARTED OFF HELPING MY HUBBY AT WORK, PAYING BILLS, THE USUAL WORK STUFF AND THEN I GOT HOME A LITTLE EARLY SO I DECIDED TO BAKE "PUMPKIN CUPCAKES W/CREME CHEESE FILLING"...I BOUGHT THIS MAGAZINE ABOUT A MONTH AGO CALLED "FALL BAKING" AND THEY HAD THE MOST DELICIOUS RECIPES AND THEY LOOKED REALLY EASY TO MAKE TOO...SOOOO LAST WEEK I BOUGHT ALL THE INGREDIENTS AND TODAY I WAS FEELING "FALLISH"....THE WIND WAS WHIPPING AND THERE WAS A CHILL IN THE AIR, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD JUST WHIP THESE BABIES UP....

DID I TELL YOU YET, THAT I AM NOT A GOOD BAKER?  WELL, I AM NOT, BUT I TRY!  MY SPECIALTY ARE THE TOLL HOUSE COOKIES - YOU REALLY CAN'T MESS THOSE UP, SO ANYWAY BACK TO MY CUPCAKES...SO THERE I AM MIXING EVERYTHING TOGETHER, PREHEATED THE OVEN,  POURED THEM INTO THE CUTEST HALLOWEEN CUPCAKE HOLDERS AND....

PLACED THEM INTO THE OVEN...EVERYTHING SO FAR SO GOOD!     NOT!!!!  THE OVEN STARTED ON FIRE BECAUSE I FILLED THEM UP TO HIGH IN THE CUPCAKE HOLDERS, SO NOW I AM PUTTING OUT A FIRE IN MY OVEN AND MY SO CALLED EASY PUMPKIN CUPCAKES WERE TOTALLY DESTROYED. 

BUT IT WASN'T THE OVEN THAT DESTROYED THEM, IT WAS ME - THEY TURNED OUT TOTALLY GROSS!  I MEAN REALLY UGLY, KIND OF DEMENTED AND LOOKED LIKE SOMETHING YOU WOULD FIND IN THE BATHROOM,

SO I JUST HAD TO TAKE A PIC OF THEM FOR ALL OF YOU TO SEE:


DID I MENTION I RUINED BOTH PANS (WHICH WERE NEW), YEP!

SO TOMORROW WHAT DO YOU THINK, SHOULD I TRY PUMPKIN BREAD?!?!?!?  OR MAYBE JUST A TRIP TO THE LOCAL BAKERY - I THINK THAT WOULD BE MUCH SAFER FOR ME AND MY FAMILY!

HOPE YOU GOT A GOOD LAUGH,  LOTS OF HUGS,
