Ok. Confession time! Just because I blog about food and do recipe tutorials does NOT mean that I never mess up in the kitchen! I totally skipped combining the butter and sugar! Trust me. You don't want to skip this step. I had to pour my batter into a blender to get it combined correctly. I debated whether or not to show you this tutorial since it wasn't "Perfect", but I figured, "Hey, Maybe you make mistakes too....A little reality is not a bad thing!" LOL.

So, you add your eggs. (Remember to mix the butter and sugar first, of course!)
