With nearly 38 years experience under my belt, one would think I wasn't capable of a flop such as this!

I won't even tell you where I got the recipe for lemon cupcakes (somewhere on the www), as I don't want to humiliate the creator of said recipe.
Not that the flop was their fault.
Mine. All mine.
When the recipe says fill cupcake cups 1/3 full....
they mean fill the cupcake cups 1/3 full.
Not "nearly" full.
And WHY didn't I pay attention to the ginormous amounts of batter this recipe made?
So now I have 18 flopped cupcakes and one flopped round cake.
Guess I'll rustle up some lemon frosting and cover the whole mess up!!!

My only hope is that my kids or Farmboy will have mercy on me and clean out my oven for Mother's Day!

Hope YOURS was at least as much fun as mine has been!
Pin It!

Hi! Happy Mother's Day to you!

I discovered how to make trifle because of a chocolate cake disaster!
Chunks of cake + Cool Whip or whipped cream + fruit! DONE :) phew!
Who knew!??

Now, when I want to go "worriless" I make trifle :)
Many Mother's Day Blessings to you ~Maria

You're funny Cyn! But I am just like that, if something is going to go wrong in the kitchen, it's on a special day or a holiday! Hehehe!

Happy Mothers day Cyn!
I have SO done that cake thing! When we first moved here 7 years from sea level in Calif. to 5,500 ft here in Utah I was forever having cake, muffin and cupcake disasters. I have learned that males in the family don't care how messy or flopped cake is still cake and they will still be happy to eat it. I hope it goes that way at your place too!
Have a great week!!

It happens to all of us once in awhile. I bet the lemon frosting will make everything much better and tasty too.

Hope you had a nice Mother's Day.

I see Maria has beat me to it; my first thought was Oh Boy! pieces of cake with fruit and homemade whipped cream. Please don't use that "frozen stuff"...your body deserves better. -smile-
