A few months ago, I baked some Dark 'n' Stormy cupcakes for a charity event and got a call this week from a man who attended. He LOVED them and wanted me to bake some for his birthday this weekend. He and his wife came this morning to pick them up and the wife said, "He's raved about these cupcakes for 6 months!" Then the husband said, "My wife fancies herself a baker and has tried a few times to recreate them..." and the wife breaks in..."but he said mine aren't as REFINED as yours!" OK, now you KNOW this woman isn't going to like my cupcakes, even if they're the best things she's ever put in her mouth!!
WOW! He put his foot in it saying that didnt he?!?
OUCH!!! I guess your cupcakes are good enough to recive the harsh cold shoulder from his wife for a while Sometimes, a good yummy cupcake is worth the sacrifice!! LOL
Wow he sure did say the wrong thing there and put his foot in his mouth as JamAndButtercream said I hope he likes sleeping on the sofa oh wait I forgot men like sleeping on the sofa it's like camping to them lol
Well you know it has been my experience that a lot of people "fancy" themselves as bakers, but the proof is in the cake so to speak. Or cupcake in this instance. I just wonder if she "fancies" herself a baker, but she really isn't all that good. Would you consider sharing the recipe, so we can all give them a try. Or is it one of those cases where you can tell us, but then you would have to kill us. LOL.
Oh, you guys are funnnnny!
Years ago I worked in a VA Hospital and one of the doctor's wives was always bringing in all sorts of baked goodies for the staff. Thankfully, it was a teaching hospital with interns/residents/fellows who will eat anything to sustain 24-30 hour days, because this darling woman who "fancied" herself a baker was the worst cook in the universe. Bar None.
30 years later I still remember having to go, "Oh Boy! Yummy stuff again. Let me have a piece." Then actually having to eat it with a smile.........
Congratulations, JohnnyCakes1966, on giving this guy something to dream about--YOUR cupcakes!
