Ina’s Mangled Muffins

When I fail, I fail BIG.

You already know that Ina’s coconut cupcakes didn’t quite go as planned.  Decapitated cupcakes.  2 dozen of them.  But if it weren’t for this fail, I wouldn’t have had the Coconut Cake win.

That got me wondering, is a failure a bad thing if it provides the opportunity to succeed in a different way?  I’ll ponder that over while I look for a way to use those mangled cupcake bottoms.  Anyone out there have a suggestion for what I should do with them?
