Mammals learn

Al is fond of telling me this on occasions when I repeat the same stupid thing I've done before (usually involves late night sewing and broken sewing machine needles).  This is the result of another high-stakes baking episode.  I don't know why I keep doing this to myself, except that perhaps this mammal is hoping to learn to bake rather than learning to go to Metropolitan Bakery to buy cupcakes for Penelope's birthday party that is really the labor day block party in our alley ('Look how many people came to wish you happy birthday honey--people you don't even know!').

Suffice it to say that the 'Boston Cream Pie' Cupcakes in Martha Stewart's cupcake cookbook looked a little different...

i am guilty of the same last-minute baking extravaganzas -- it's exhausting! I'm sure the cupcakes tasted good, which is the important part, right?

Ahem...I promise I will answer my phone next time one of the kids has a birthday. Also, I am happy to pass on my (nearly) fool proof cake and frosting recipes.
ps: I would gladly eat your cupcakes, it's the love in them that counts
