Satan Cupcakes & A Kitchen Fail

Yesterday several people searched the web for “Satan Cupcakes” and landed on my blog.

I had to let that sink in for a second.  I mean, I know my cooking isn’t the greatest.  I’ve screwed up Pillsbury slice & bake cookies, but Satan cupcakes, really?

The kids love my cupcakes, but I know that’s not saying much.  Give a kid enough sugar and he’ll like anything.

Then I had to ponder the idea that someone knew just what their friend wanted for their birthday – a Satan Cupcake.

It’s not quite my idea of celebrating, but I can kind of understand how they landed on my blog.  After all, I’ve had my share of kitchen fires, and just yesterday, I did this.

Microwave your sponge on high for five minutes.

Then walk out of the room.

The germs definitely die.

    How in the world do you find out what google searches lead people to your blog? And I don’t remember reading about Satan cupcakes anywhere, but also never heard of microwaving a sponge. I have however, cooked a pizza with the cardboard left on the bottom. Didn’t realize it until I tried to cut it. Gives new meaning to the idea of “tasting like cardboard”.

    Soak the sponge in water with a drop of bleach. Much safer then setting the house on fire with it in the microwave for 5 minutes.

    Last week, I discovered why you poke a potato with a fork before baking them. Evidently, I had missed one, and that just so happened to be the one I decided to test to see if they were done…BAM! It exploded all over my oven, my floor, and me.

    I enjoyed this most delightful post. A search term that lead someone to my blog was “rotten sour cookie”. That brings to mind two questions: What on my blog triggered that search term and why is someone looking for a sour rotten cookie? Despite that bit of levity, the all time winner is “how do you get a fork out of your garbage disposal”. I do have exprience with this….lots of experience. But I don’t have a recipe for it……not one that’s posted anyway.

    for the record, I can paint, sew, create like Martha Stewart – well better than her! But when it comes to baking – I am a big fat fail. Should we start a support group for women who can not even microwave a sponge? Good laugh!
