I made cupcakes yesterday. It was one of those cupcake recipes where you start with a box of cake mix but you add other things so it's not just prepared cake mix (not like adding chocolate chips but like adding some flour and cocoa powder and buttermilk ect.)
I then made frosting from scratch. And burned myself (minorly) on the saucepan. But then I drowned my pain in cupcakes so it all worked out.
