I always eat the cookie/brownie/cake batter. I’m aware of salmonella, but as a gambler, I like to think it will never ever affect me.
That said, up until a couple of days ago I had no reason to believe that a box of cake mix would actually yield two dozen cupcakes as it states on the back of the box. I thought it was a lie… a goal. (Kind of like my driver’s license weight.)
At best, when I make cupcakes I get about 19.
Well, looky up there next to my short, yet able-bodied, baking assistant.
Our recipe yielded 24 cupcakes!
Well, I’ll be…
So, about my assistant, I told her, “Hey Lila… smile!”
…and that’s the face I got*.
*to be fair, she was sick with a head cold at the time.
She looks like ‘Lil John though, no?
I was like, “Lila, what do you think of all those cupcakes?”
She exclaimed, “Mama, bake ’em up. It’ll be crunk. UHhhhhhh*.”
*Please read, “UHhhhhh” in the ‘Lil John voice. If you don’t know the ‘Lil John voice, well, that’s a shame. As you can imagine, it’s pretty amazing.
