I figured out the cupcake debacle!

16 Jul

Thanks to the fabulous tips at Baking Bites, I figured out what I must have done to my awful July 4th cupcakes

http://bakingbites.com/2009/07/can-you-over-soften-butter/

It was an awfully hot day in my kitchen, and I let the butter sit out for 45 minutes or so…  And for the chocolate layer (since it was a re-do), I ended up using the microwave to soften it…

Mystery solved!
