I'd be willing to bet my last dollar that those cupcakes had a DOUBLE sugar in them. Trust me....

Oooh interesting. Can you elaborate on what happens when you have too much sugar? Too much of a rise? This sounds intriguing.

Too much sugar will crystalize and prevent the gluten from forming so the cake just falls. Too much sugar in cookies just makes them spread all over the place.

Thanks for sharing both pictures. It shows that even amazing cake decorators (those cupcakes in the second picture look awesome!) have baking catastrophes in the kitchen as well. icon_smile.gif

Good to know. I took a second look at the photos. At first I thought it was in explosion. On second look I see it was a major fall or implosion.

I'm adding this tidbit to my baking notes. And I am revisiting a couple of recipes that I thought had too much sugar. While I didn't get that serious of a fallen cupcake, I didn't like that they didn't stay nicely mounded.
Thanks.
