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 :)
