We had already spend 2 hours preparing and baking these cupcakes and we didn't want to try and re-make them because they obviously didn't turn out the first time, why try again. We toss the cupcakes and hide our evidence (why? you are probably wondering .. you don't know our husbands/boyfriends). We start thinking .. and thinking .. and then Heather pulls out a box of white cake mix (box cake mix, yes, but what other option did we have at this point .. we had already failed at our first attempt) .. but it was white cake .. we needed it to be chocolate. So we pull out our phones and start googling away on how to turn white cake mix to chocolate. You would be surprised at some of the things we found online .. such as, "yes, it is possible to turn white cake to chocolate cake all you need to do is add chocolate" .... no shit sherlock! We knew you can't just add chocolate and be done .. there were lots of ingredients that needed to be added as well .. we couldn't find more than one website that gave us the same answer, so we started winging it .. we are bakers after all, right? We got this. No, Ashley .. you don't "got this" .. remember, that's what you guys said last time and you see how that turned out! So we start testing our originally white, now chocolate cake mix .. taste okay .. so we bake one cupcake at a time to make sure it doesn't cave on us again ( because then we would be total failures ) .. and to make sure it tasted good.
NO ONE could know we used a box! Meanwhile the boys are in the living room playing their
