Cupcake Fail

I'm no Martha. That was painfully obvious on this month's Martha Stewart Cupcake challenge. We were to make the turkey cupcakes.

We made them using One Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes. This is Leelee's favorite cupcake recipe so far. I also like it because it's easy.

Go ahead, take a look at what they were supposed to look like. Then quickly come back and see mine....

Try not to laugh.

There is one big advantage of cupcakes this have absolutely no remorse for eating them. In fact, by eating them, you are putting them out of their misery. Ugly cakes taste better than pretty cakes because there is no guilt involved. You don't feel like you are ruining some work of art.

Hopefully, we'll have better luck next month.


  1. I have to send my kids out to bake anything. If I don't they're eating whatever it is b4 I can get it decorated! Not that I foray into the kitchen much... *lol*

  2. ha! I left out the part where this was the second batch of cupcakes and we only had seven! They ate the others before they could even get decorated!

  3. Thanks for posting! I have to admit, these were a lot harder than I expected! I love the comment about no guilt. Don't you just hate it when people say, "These are just too pretty to eat?" :-) I did love the one bowl chocolate cupcakes!

  4. Hilarious! I also thought mine looked kind of strange and sad, but that's half the fun.

  5. Awww, I still think they're cute! And yes, sometimes things do taste better than they look.

  6. awww they are cute no matter what!!!

  7. I did laugh, sorry but those are uuu-gly. But I know they probably taste better than anything in a five-star joint. And they look a lot like my 'baking'.

    Love it.


Thanks and have a great day!
