Remember my post a week or so ago on the "funky" little cupcake holder I bought? With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd bake some cupcakes and try out the new holder. I found a recipe on
GoAskKatie.comRecipes http://goaskkatie.blogspot.com/2011/02/lemon-cupcakes-recipe.html that looked interesting. I thought it was a bit odd the recipe didn't call for baking powder or baking soda and figured they probably wouldn't rise like I'm used to. Once baking was complete, my hunch was right...the texture/weight is more like a muffin than a cupcake. I haven't sampled one yet, so who am I to judge (I'll report that later!). Moving right along...cupcakes baked, iced, and placed in the holder. But wait, I'm one short, HUH!!?????? I checked the counter and the pan to make sure I hadn't missed one...NOTHING! So then I begin to count...everyone knows there's 12 slots for cupcakes in a standard muffin tin, check!. Number of slots on the holder, 13. 13, #%*&^!!@!!!, REALLY? The man that designed the holder must have the same mindset as the guys who decided the number of hotdogs in a package would be different than the number of hotdog buns (I say "man" because that's a boo boo a woman just wouldn't make! ;) Sooooo, with alittle improv, the top "cupcake-less" slot was filled with candy. Ya live and learn.
