Busy getting nowhere

I have been very busy. Busy trying to produce the perfect cupcake without setting foot in the kitchen which would be a guaranteed disaster. The cooker hates me almost as much as my sewing machine. I know it's true. I've seen the way its gas rings glow at me and blow out when I'm not looking. I've noticed that no matter how carefully I follow a recipe it always burns. One day the cooker will pay but not yet.
I tried to crochet a cupcake. The instructions seemed idiot proof, but they clearly were not me proof. I dug out my hook and some brown pink and cream balls of wool. I was set. Several hours later ( I crochet slowly and badly) I had a brown, cream and pink thing. I can't really describe it as anything else. It did not even closely resemble the picture. So I browsed the web and found lots of other cupcake products that I'd thought I'd share with you as I can't possibly scar you all with a photo of my thing.

cute lipglosses.

It would seem we all love cupcakes whether edible or not.

I think we all have day like that when our vision doesn't match the finished product! That pet bed is super cute!

I have the same oven!
The most irritating problem is a brand new one has been sitting by the kitchen table waiting for installation for months. I did crank out 24 cupcakes for my daughter yesterday... cautiously (with insulated cookie sheets under the muffin tins)
Yours may just need to be calibrated.
I made a cupcake pillow slip the other day. Must blog it soon.
I love the lip gloss!

This is a really funny post, it sure is nice to know that it happens to all of us.

I'm glad I'm not the only one having trouble with my crafted cupcake!! Ironically, the edible ones are something I can do pretty well (unfortunately for my waistline!)
