Looking back at these pics I can laugh but when it happened I wanted to cry. Mary and I spent so much time making these. I like to store my cupcakes/treats in the oven when I'm done especially if they can't be covered. I usually put a sign on the on/off button to remind me that somethings in there but today was a little crazy and I didn't even think of it.
So an hour and a half before I needed to have these puppies at the church I turned on my oven to preheat it so I could cook the spinach artichoke dip I had just made. 10 minutes later my friend said what is that smoke from. This is where I let out my favorite swear word and then wanted to cry. I was glad I had friends over to get me through it calmly. And I was thankful to Mary for bringing one pan to the church.
Here is what the cupcakes looked like before they got melted. Thanks Mary for saving these.
*Looking back I am grateful for the humility lesson and in remembering what is really important in life. It's not the end of the world to ruin a few cupcakes or to have to go buy some from the bakery.
