Baked cupcakes today
My arm is "dead" from beating so much butter etc.



Chocolate cupcakes, and penuche frosting. (All from scratch, of course!) Sadly, the cupcakes fell a little but it's 1 mile above sea level here so baking is....a challenge here.

You need a mixer.

I found this info about high altitude baking that may solve your problems.

Oh I know your pain with falling cupcakes! I just moved to Wyoming and we live up in the mountains (I am from California, where I was only 17 ft above sea level) and forgot I would need to change the recipe up! They were really really good, but had a crater! lol You're look so yummy! Best of luck the next time you bake, try Epicurious' tips for high altitude baking.
