I even zapped myself for the first time with the lye. It's no fun, but easy enough to remedy. I rinsed my mouth out with water, then vinegar, then water again. It did really feel like I had my tongue zapped with a strong battery.

When I pulled the cupcakes out of the freezer, I thought that they would be fine. After sitting at room temperature for about 30 minutes, the cupcakes were starting to droop and oil was pooling on the tops of the cupcake bases that I had poured. I was very disappointed to say the least. Especially since I knew that these would have to be re-batched. I got everything together, including a recipe with a lower superfat ratio. After bringing the small addition to trace I started the crockpot on low and started adding the cupcakes slowly. I cut them in pieces before I added each one to the pot. I cooked this mixture just until it was gelled and then I just kept it hot until I was done piping.
