last week i made funfetti cupcakes for my univ108 students but the university ended up closing at 3:00 p.m., which is right when my class was supposed to start.  it’s okay though because my coworkers had a surprise treat instead and i was able to go home early.  so now tomorrow will be our first class and i made… well actually attempted to make boston cream pie cupcakes.  only they didn’t turn out exactly as they should.  i found the original recipe on one of my favorite blogs, annie’s eats and they looked absolutely delicious.  well things kept going wrong as i tried to make them (filling spilled out, ganache was lumpy, etc.).  so i changed the recipe a little bit and they are still pretty tasty cupcakes inspired by boston cream pie.  i hope my students like them.
