I actually can’t talk about the fowl-off, it’s like Fight Club for poultry. But I can say I made chocolate cupcakes from scratch for the first time and they were just delicious.

I filled the papers pretty carelessly, so you can see they are uneven and a little misshapen. Oh well.


The butter cream frosting was a less successful maiden voyage. I think my egg-sugar mixture was too warm when I started adding the butter, and I used the wrong attachment on my standing mixer. It was very soupy.

Man. Look at all the butter that goes into a batch of frosting. I think it makes way too much for 18 cupcakes though.
