I did it.
I baked cupcakes in my tiny toaster oven.
My friend and neighbour has a real oven, but my late night vanilla cupcake craving needed to be fixed right away. It worked pretty well! I found all the ingredients I needed for the cupcakes, including baking powder, creamy butter, and (priceeeey) icing sugar for the buttercream frosting.
I bought individual cupcake tins, they're so easy to find in Japan. I think they really enjoy baking here! I was worried about the temperature of my toaster oven, but I just used the lowest heat setting and kept an eye on them. I could only bake six at a time, but it was all worth it.
I won't lie, I ate most of them. MOST. I did share a few...
