What happened to my cupcakes?
As an absolute cupcake fiend and lover of buttercream icing, I decided to try my hand at making my own cupcakes. Easy right? Um, no! The actual cupcake making went fine, but the buttercream icing was a disaster. Instead of thick, creamy icing that can stand up on its own, it turned out watery and slid off the side of the cakes. Can anyone tell me what happened? I followed a basic vanilla buttercream recipe, but still disaster.
