Finally, on my third try, my cupcakes finally looked decent! The second batch tasted best, so I'll probably be doing extensive Google research tonight to figure out why they dropped like bricks and how I can prevent this from happening next time.
Anyhow, they were fine, so I decided to decorate them using this idea. Giving it my own twist, of course. They were a gift for a friend who is expecting a baby. I am glad that she liked them!!!
