Tried to burn the house down last night...

    Ashlee and I made Marble Fudge cupcakes last night. Thank goodness we were chatting in the kitchen while they baked - and that her brain works better than mine - because she noticed smoke pouring out of the stovetop. We opened the oven and smoke just rolled out.

    The cupcake papers almost caught on fire! I think another minute and they would have. They were almost completely black - but the cupcakes themselves weren't burned at all.

    I've never had that happen before. We did everything right.

    Later, we made more cupcakes using different cupcake papers and everything was fine.

    Took a while to get the smell out of the house, though.....

    Are you sure Miss KT wasn't helping you bake?

    It *said* they were cupcake papers and they *looked* like cupcake papers. They hadn't been open until we used them that night.

    It was really weird. And frustrating.

    Don't do that! ;) I'm glad there wasn't a fire. Sounds like the oven temp was a bit too high for the liners.

    by the way, what's the diff between cupcake papers and ... cupcake papers?

    Maybe they were "Made in China"... like the defective wallboard we've heard about...

    Strangely - this is also true - I have had the same issue - from papers that came out of the SAME PACKAGE. Half burnt, the other half fine...
