NOT my best Martha Day

DEAR MARTHA,

Some days you are the dough sometimes you are the dough stuck to the pan. You, of all people, should know that. Lest you start wagging your finger at me and saying I did not properly prepare my pans let me defend myself and say I DID TOO. Sometimes, I just can't do it like you. I see it in on the page. I see it in my mind. But, something happens from here to there. From oven to cabinet. First, just let me say that I do love to eat raw cake dough. There that is out. But, there was still plenty left for the cute pumpkin cupcakes.

I bought all the necessary ingredients. I bought a new mini bundt cake pan. I know how important it is for you to have the essential cookware and products. Just like in the picture. I pre-prepared my pan. I had the visual in my mind. I bought fresh new food coloring because I hadn't bought any since the late '70's and didn't really know how long it kept. I must admit I was surprised to read that it was 50 drops of yellow to the red. I was willing and ready to count each drop for my orange frosting. I bought pretzel rods for the stems. Just like in the picture. My little library Bookworms were going to love these for our party on Wednesday!


So, hence the routine. Like a million cupcakes before. Prepare as directed! Don't you love that? This is what they were supposed to turn out to look like.



I basically just turned out with crumbs after I pried the bundts out of the pan. I'll try again tomorrow. Why do I always need a headstart on any project?

Oh no. They are so cute in the picture. Maybe it will work tomorrow. Bakers Joy it a few times. Or there's always the good old HEB Bakery!
