We have always been told to never judge a book by it’s cover. It’s not what’s on the outside that counts…it’s what’s on the inside. Deep down, there is something good in every ugly person.
Today, and only today, I am throwing that mumble jumble out the window. Why? Well, take a look at this:
Beautiful, right? I assume you are nodding your head right now, and trying to lick your monitor. I am going to pat myself on the back and say right now that this cupcake looks grocery store bakery quality. I think that if I packaged these, I might be able to get someone to pay for it – because they look pretty.
Now let me show you what they looked like before I dressed them up:
Not pretty at all. Big difference right? These suckers are ugly. The peanut butter filling fell out of each and every one. I had to stick the filling back in the cakes, and I had to trim the cake so things would look nice. It’s hard to believe that these little chocolate messes turned out to the be beautiful cupcakes.
This is why I want you to ignore the advice of your mother, and to judge this book by its cover. If you would have seen what these things looked like first, you wouldn’t have even given them a second glance.
By the way, these were tasty (in my humble opinion). The hubby liked them and so did my co-workers. Here’s the recipe so you can give them a try (thanks to Your Cup a Cake for this tasty treat).
