Brace yourselves, because Debra of Urban Moo Cow has the single best CraftFail solution I’ve ever seen.
See, she thought making cupcakes from a box mix would mean that baking edible cupcakes was a realistic possibility, even though she’s already explained in hilarious detail why she’s been banished to Pinterest Purgatory, which she describes as a place “where the craftless souls wander around making straight lines with a wooden ruler.”
But hey, just because experts like the fabulous Tidy Mom can make perfect cupcakes using a mix that taste like Grandma’s made-from-scratch homemade variety, doesn’t mean everyone can.
Case in point: among Debra’s crafty and kitchen-related transgressions, she confesses to a time when she burned cupcakes she made from a mix – but here’s where the genius comes in:
She cut the tops off and called them cookies.
Lesson for the day: decapitated muffins = cookies.
Okay, so she said they still tasted terrible, but she made the icing FROM SCRATCH, people, and that has to count for something. She also gets bonus awesomeness points for taking a picture with the burnt blunt stumps in the background – and for letting us feature them on CraftFail.
