I wanted to try a new recipe over the weekend but somehow I measured the liquid ingredients incorrectly and the whole thing was an unsalvagable mess. I dumped it out and figured I'd try again this week. So that is what I am doing right now. The recipe is for strawberry coconut cupcakes. The cupcakes themselves are a vanilla cake with shredded coconut. The icing is a strawberry buttercream and then you sprinkle toasted coconut on top. I like strawberry and love all things coconut so I am interested to see how the flavors go together. The batter is mixed, in muffin cups, and baking in the oven for about 30 minutes. I will deal with dinner when they are done and then do the strawberry buttercream and toasted coconut after that. I will bring them in to work tomorrow and leave them in the faculty room for my coworkers to enjoy. They like when I bake.

CouldnĀ“t you turn the "mess" into pancakes? The word unsalvagable saddens me.

@NJChicaa From what you wrote, probably the only problem was too much liquid.

It's a good thing I am not close in miles. You'd make life difficult for me! LOL

@NJChicaa we would definitely have fun. I'd be big as a house, but we'd have fun. You'd just need to find a wheel barrow to move me from location to location.

I'm glad the batter went better this time around! I wonder what was mismeasured last time?

OH my gosh, the faculty members will really enjoy these cupcakes! Coconut is also very decorative, Mom quite often used it to beautify cakes and cookies.
