She's 21. They were supposed to be for her, myself and my SO only, as my daughter is on a diet. But my nephew asked for one.

It was just curious to me that she'd go through all that work to adjust recipes, etc., for a half batch, and botch the entire baking experience. No follow through. Even the frosting amounts need to be adjusted.

Maybe you could have baked some cupcakes for anyone wanting one ? Why waste the batter ?

I'm of the perception that this is probably less about you, than her. What else did she eat or didn't eat that cupcakes couldn't be handed out at the same time? See what I'm trying to say?

There's leftover batter and frosting. I'm thinking that it's her and not you, that's all.

I bake a lot at home and I also work in kitchens, professionally. Work smart not hard type of mentality.

I'm so tired of her that I don't even want my SO here anymore. Why can't she just make enough money already so she can be out? It cant happen too soon. A woman needs her own domain.
I don't think it's fair of you to demand she makes enough money and has her own domain. You don't make enough to be on your own, you depend on SO for money and you live at your mothers. You want something from a 21- year-old that you didn't accomplish yourself yet you are much older than 21.

I feel there is more to all this. It can't be about cupcake

So if I read correctly your stepdaughter was kind enough to bake you something and you complain it wasn't pretty enough. Can't you just be thankful she made you a treat?
