I followed the recipe exactly, it's a mess. Any advice? I'm trying to surprise my wife with cupcakes (p. 73) for her birthday, I'm down to the wire! Thanks everyone!

what kind of sugar did you use? did you use granulated sugar? that would explain graininess

And if you used using sugar did you sift? If you did use icing sugar I would sift in some more and then whisk like crazy, preferably with an electric whisk or mixer. If you used granulated sugar you'll probably need to start again!
