Strawberry Cupcakes, Kind Of.

Sometimes things just don't work out the way we planned. Take these Strawberry Cupcakes I made last night. They taste pretty great but they look nothing like they're supposed to. Here's mine:


And here's what they're supposed to look like:

Sorry Martha Stewart, seems I failed you this time. The cupcake itself, turned out just fine. The Strawberry Meringue Buttercream? Not so much. I was pretty upset at first because I wanted them to turn out perfectly. But that's just the way life goes. First I tried piping the frosting... and then bag exploded. So I tried to thicken it and somehow made things worse. Tomorrow I'm attempting another meringue buttercream and I sure hope it turns out better than this one. Fingers crossed!
