Pipe Dream #40: To Use Up Leftovers

For some reason, whenever I make chocolate cupcakes, I always have leftover batter. In some cases, I end up filling the liners too full because I don’t want any batter to go to waste, and then they overflow.

Ahem. Exhibit A:

The rest of them were prettier. But see how there was a good quarter inch of overflow that I picked off before frosting? Yep.

Sew anyway, I often use up leftover batter by making mini cupcakes. They are small, meaning they are simpler to decorate, and I can make a full batch of them to give away. Here is another example.

Also b0nus, this is me endeavoring to be a good steward. Yes!

For cute!

    Lauren, I especially like the little ones because it looks like you have just as much frosting as you do cake. :)
