Mini Disaster!

I posted on Facebook this morning that I was making mini chocolate cupcakes with mint buttercream today… well, they’re a disaster.  It’s been a LONG time since I’ve had a disaster to share with you guys so it seems I was about due!

The last time I made mini’s was Spring 2009… almost a year… and I totally forgot the golden rule of mini’s DO NOT OVERFILL!  What did I do?  I filled them up as much as I’d fill up a regular cupcake cup 2/3 full.  WRONG WRONG WRONG! 1/3-1/2 and NO MORE!! I should have known.

They mini’s stuck to the pan and NONE of them were salvageable.   I got so mad, I took my spatula and stabbed a few.  GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!

Luckily, I didn’t use all the batter and will have enough for a second pan.  Guess I’ll only be bringing 24 mini’s instead of 48 to the event tomorrow.  (Thank goodness I volunteered to bring them and they weren’t for a client!)

But I'm sure they tasted fine! Save the pieces/crumbs to use on ice cream :)
