1. boston cream pie

Today was my first venture into the lovely land of Betty Crocker cupcakes. And what better start than with Boston Cream Pie cupcakes? 

Pictured here is what they're supposed to look like:

And here's how mine turned out:

Now. These are the best looking ones out of the bunch because my chocolate icing didn't turn out as thick. The solution? More powdered sugar (as my dear friends advised me because that's the best way to get a thicker consistency). 

Well...after basically doubling the sugar content it was still a bit runny. in order to avoid going into a sugar coma i thought it might just be best to stick with it as is. i mean, it is still delicious, right? So the majority of the cupcakes ended up with a bit of a skiwampus icing job. 

Delicious flavor? Of course. Aesthetically pleasing? i'm working on
