I wanted to impress Jarod & Liz (.com) this afternoon with my giant cupcake skillz.

Even though it was such a success last week, I think I got a bit cocky this morning… and ended up with this:

And this is improved, because it’s at least decorated and hides the burnt outsides and the so-uncooked-it’s-still-runny insides. The nude version was UGLY. Trust me. It even needed a spatula to move it from the cake airer because the uncooked batter fused the damn cake to it.

It was easily the biggest baking disaster I’ve ever created.

Jarod and Liz picked the icing colours, and the decorations. We popped a mini cupcake (made from batter leftovers) on top in a vain attempt to minimise the horror.

Liz made chocolate hot cross buns and they were much better than my dismal attempt at baking.

I’m thinking I might branch out into the world of professional cupcaking. What do you reckon?
