Oh honey, I’m sure it’s not that bad.  After the wedding you and your mom will laugh about this. I’m sure she’s thrilled that she got to help you with this.  My mom would be really excited and happy.  Buy yourselves a bottle of wine and enjoy some of the rejected cupcakes as your reward….

I totally know how you feel!! I make chocolate covered truffles for gifts at christmas time, and my fiance and I thought we should do that for our favors!! We started and its been a total disaster from the start. Making truffles in the height of heat and humidity of summer is completely different than doing it in December’s cold dry air.

The chocolate comepletely seized on one batch, the coating bloomed on another, and we have had to get up at about 6 in the morning just to be able to coat them properly without the tempered choclate being ruined. Its been a bit of a nightmare.

We decided to round out our favors with purchased baked goods, so we only have to do about half the truffles we had intended. We have only two more batches to make, thank goodness!

Good luck with this, I really feel your pain!!

Oh no! That’s so frustrating.

I know when I first got engaged, I wanted to control every little thing, and make so much of it. My dear father reminded me that I would have enough to worry about and didn’t need the extra stress of baking my own wedding cake. He’s good at bringing me back to my senses. lol

Everyone loves cupcakes no matter what! I’m glad it all turned out in the end, and that you have some leftovers to enjoy!
