Modern Family: Haley Makes Cupcakes

Haley needs to bake cupcakes for a school fundraiser and wants her mother to bake them for her. She purposely misrepresents her baking abilities in order to convince her mother to take over the baking process. After her mother bakes the cupcakes, she throws them in the trash so that Haley has to bake them on her own. Haley's parents taste test her cupcakes, and although they claim the cupcakes are delicious, in reality they are unsavory.
