Don’t attempt to make cupcakes on the hottest day of the year. The day you cannot breathe when you leave the house. The day the flowers wilt even though they’re have been watered and cared for. That day is not the day for you to attempt making cupcakes.
Don’t throw together a new recipe when you cannot move due to the extreme heat using your beloved dried cherries and lovely dark chocolate chips. This will make you really, really want the cupcakes to work out.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking you can regulate the temperature on your gas BBQ. This won’t work as it’s so hot even the lowest setting will be hotter then what you might like
Don’t try to put a lunch together for a toddler while you’re trying to watch said cupcakes on the BBQ. It’s not a wise move.
Don’t make your favorite icing, doctor it up with cherries and then stare longingly at the bowl after your attempts to ice the cupcakes fail as a lovely sugary crust has formed around the cupcakes you’ve made in the BBQ which prevents any icing from sticking to the cupcake in any way.
If you should attempt to make cupcakes in this way you will have delicious crusty muffins with soft insides. It’s not the worst thing in the world but there are better methods that one could explore. An oven would likely be my number one choice…
