I did it! I made batter! Even though I didn't know the difference between blend and beat on my hand mixer.
So, this is where I need your help: I have NO idea how I'm supposed to get the batter into those tiny little cups without thousands of spills. I spilled so much batter, and poured so unevenly, that I only had enough for 22 cupcakes. I sorta got the hang of it by the end, but I still don't know how you guys manage it!
And this is where things went a little bit awry. I thought it would be cute to try the cut-plastic-bag trick and make little icing swirls, but I had accidentally bought whipped icing, so it came out looking like poop.
Now....what do I do with all of these cupcakes?
