I just happened to be baking cupcakes because…who needs a reason? Actually, I have four or five students with March birthdays, a load of extra frosting in my refrigerator and a baking mania. Plus, enough batter for 13 cupcakes.
I baked 12, nestled happily in their little paper cups, their destiny shaped by an orderly muffin tin. But, ah, the batter for the 13th cupcake yearned to breathe free so I flung it, freeform, into a hot buttered frying pan. According to the consumer (my daughter), it was an awesome pan-cupcake.
with frosting on top!
