Bad Juju

Inspired by an article in Food & Wine from the Mad Genius, I wanted to try making swirled frosting. I was underwhelmed with the result. 

First, I didn't have the right tip for decorating. That's why I squiggled instead of swirling. Second, when I put extra effort in to something, I want extra flavor. As you would expect, it was really just chocolate and vanilla. Even more, once mixed in the mouth, it was just weak chocolate. So, I'm going to pass on this technique in the future...unless I think of some flavor combo that I can't resist. 

Finally, to be fair, I was in a bad mood when I made these. I burned my hand, and I dropped a cupcake. Maybe it wasn't the technique. Maybe it was me. Or, maybe my batch just had bad juju.
