operation: cupcake is complete, but i wouldn't really call it a success. all the cupcakes came out with FLAT tops. they are hideous. they are delicate and falling apart. the lemon curd for the poppyseed flavor came out all wrong, so i had to completely change my course of action here and just use an icing on top instead of the lemon curd filling inside. UGH!
aside from being truly hideous, the cupcakes at least taste good. i made chocolate with vanilla icing, vanilla with strawberry filling and strawberry icing, and lemon poppyseed with lemony icing.
chocolate not shown.
the kitchen looks like a zombie julia child cooked up a brains roulade with a side of pus pilaf and didn't even clean up her dishes.
anyway, i hope these make at least a decent impression! maybe people will be too busy playing kickball and drinking to notice how ugly the cupcakes are.
