Peach Melba Cupcakes
My teacher took a cupcake order from me a little while ago. He didn’t want Chocolate or Vanilla he wanted something unique, not something everyone would eat every day. He choose Peach cupcakes. What a different type of cupcake! I got too it and made these lovely delicious cupcakes.

While i was making the cupcakes i thought Hmm.. What else can go in these cupcakes? Peach Filling! I started making the filling on the stove and i thought it was going to turn out. And while i was whisking the ingredients it started bubbling. The bubbles went flying up and hit me in the face and burned me right under the eye and my nose. I couldn’t quit crying i ran put water on and my face was bubbling. I was freaking out. I thought I’m not going back to normal. Anyhow the filling never did turn out. But that doesn’t stop me from trying again. I do have a scar that will stay there till i have some creme to help it go away. All i can say is that is a True Baker! Burnt her face to make cupcakes for her teacher for the class. My new nickname is burned face!
I had some bad and good experiences making these cupcakes! But they were sure delicious!
