Disastrous Cupcakes, But Gorgeous Nails!

On Thursday, I left school with a few ideas. My ideas are not always good, but still…

The first was to get my nails done. I opted for some chrome talons, to brighten my day…


Fingers and tootsies done, I headed off to pick the children up from my in-laws. We had the Macmillan Coffee Morning the next day, and a cake sale, for charity, so I thought why not bake a batch or two of cupcakes for school!

Off we trotted to the supermarket to get the right ingredients, me tapping my new, shiny nails everywhere! (Love them!)

And the baking started in earnest. Lil Princess was eager to help so she took hold of the electric whisk and we got beating…

The rise was amazing… during the firstΒ 5 minutes, then they started to dip…

I ended up with two trays of sweet Yorkshire puddings!



In all my time baking, never have I had that happen to me! I was devastated! And i had even got the buttercream icing ready to pipe too!

So frustrated was I that I anger-iced the cakes… and after that, there was no way I could take them anywhere to sell!


Though Hubby Dearest and the kids assured me they were beautifully edible, if a tad crisp around the edges!

What was the point of rushing aroundΒ the supermarket, for them!?

Sigh! Possible overbeating, I was informed by a friend who is a baker!

Still, at least my nails look good….

    Well hello!! indeed, at least your nails are amazing:) I would have bought 3 or 4 of those cupcakes just for me …okay a dozen and freeze 6 so I don`t eat all 12 in one helping:) I got a super pedicure two weeks just before leaving for a retreat…I knew I would be in my bare feet when receiving darshan…and they even added that shiny coating to make dry faster and they are so resistant which is necessary in our winter boots.

    I can’t see anything wrong with those cupcakes. I’d have bought the whole lot. And now I’m calling you not the Dancing Queen, but the Icing Queen. πŸ˜€ Bring it on, ABBA.

    Talons? Have you become an eagle? Or, some sort of dangerous bird?

    Love the nails. And to be honest the cupcakes look perfectly edible. I’ve seen similar on sale for Macmillan, after all we buy the cakes to donate to a great cause. Bet you didn’t have ‘soggy bottoms’!

    Awesome, Sis! They look beautiful! I don’t have that nail stress anymore since I have to keep them short anyway due to the treatments I give. Actually a relief …. lol!

    No disaster……… smother with custard for a ‘surprise’ dessert, or cut as butterfly cakes and add quark with some chopped apricots.
