I’m crazy about recipes. A good chunk of my web-browsing is looking for recipes, saving them to my google drive and then pouring through them as I contemplate my next endeavor.
However, I think there’s a lot to be said for the idea of cooking, and the actual outcome. For example, I tried making these for my son’s class per the teacher’s request for ‘homemade snacks.’ I followed a recipe I found online, but they came out so dry that no one wanted any. The frosting looks nice, but it wasn’t as yummy as it looked.
So let that be a warning to you, and a reassurance if your own work doesn’t turn out okay. A dry and unflavorful cupcake could still look pretty. Because we can’t taste stuff on the internet, you can feel like a failure even if it’s instagram-able. 😦
