No injuries reported as a result of large cupcake explosion in South Surrey

There is nothing worse than discovering the recipe was published wrong – after y0u’ve placed the cupcakes in the oven.

Apparently someone wrote 4 tbsp when it should have been one, which resulted in a large chemical reaction in my oven, followed by globs and globs of batter rising and falling everywhere…

A quick google of the recipe source online, shows there have been reports of cupcake explosions all over North America as a result – I am merely the latest in a long line of disgruntled bakers.

    Oops, it was baking powder. Apparently I happened upon the uncorrected version online, and after the mess, I googled around and discovered the original source, where it detailed the horrors of many others who had followed the recipe- only to find out what happens when you mix too much baking powder with a liguid, and add heat.

    Man, I think you could blow out concrete pilings with the ensuing force! Who knew cupcakes could be so deadly- or messy!
