Everybody on Instagram wants to show their best, their prettiest. Everything. All the time. Granted, I’m not a renowned food instagrammer, but I try to show the best angle of my shots, particularly the ones of food I made. Well, these pictures show two attempts of the same cupcake and icing recipe. My attempt yesterday resulted in overflowing muffin tins that prompted me to cut the sides off the cupcakes, making them square on top. Then the icing got stuck in the icing tip, so I just globbed the icing on the best I could. But I was bound and determined to fix my mistakes. And I was so pleased with how the second batch turned out today that I decorated the cupcakes.
While I was lamenting my first batch, my husband said, “Do you think all those food instagrammers have perfect results every time?” I bet if we asked them all, they’d say no, but they’ll always show you the flawless result, which may have been their second or twenty-second attempt.
My point: everyone makes mistakes, even when you don’t see those mistakes. To err is human... By the way, these are chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter buttercream icing.
