Failed Recipe

I made another Martha Stewart cupcake.

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. They sound good, right? They look good, right?
They sucked. I would definitely not make them again. Definitely, definitely.

The cake was dry (despite under-cooking it) and was not high in flavor to make up for the dryness.

The frosting was yummy. Seven-minute frosting is delicious and sweet and meringue-y. It wasn't heavy enough to balance the dry cake though. Maybe it was my quantity of icing to cake? I like seven-minute frosting on a light, airy cake. Something more like an angel-food.
They were pretty. The cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top made for a lovely-looking cupcake.

Did Martha fail or did I fail?

I choose the former.
