Erinn Fail: Cupcakes

Last weekend I got it into my head I should make cupcakes with a filling...
I don't know why. But I wanted to bake and fill it with more sugar.

I found a recipe for banana cream filled cupcakes, I spent $34 on ingredients. I started to make them at 2:30 and at 5:30 I was finished.  It took me 3 hours.  This is what my kitchen looked like:

This is what I looked like: (I know you're assuming it's flour on my shirt--- nope, it's corn starch)

Bonus points if you can figure out how nerdy my shirt is.

This is how they were supposed to come out looking:

And my final product came out like this:

I pour graham cracker crumbs and caramel on top afterwards. Promise, but it STILL didn't look anything like the picture

Do you know what I forgot to do?

Make dinner.

I spent 3 hours in the kitchen and I TOTALLY FORGOT TO MAKE DINNER.

Saturday Night Dinner in my house:  Banana Cream filled Cupcakes.

This one could be a fail or a win... depending on how you look at it.

By the way... the cupcakes were AWESOME.

BEST YELLOW CAKE I'VE EVER MADE (probably because it didn't come from a box)

If you follow the recipe on the website be sure to read the comments first--- um yeah, those were really helpful.

So tell me, what it a fail or a win? Sometimes in my life I can't decide.


  1. That's clearly a Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker shirt.

  2. I am glad all the work paid off! Cupcakes for dinner could be a new trend. LOL.

    WIth my sweet tooth, I certainly wouldn't complain.

  3. Love Beaker!!

    And it's definitely a win - cupcakes for dinner? No contest! :)
