I’m up to my elbows in cupcakes and frosting and sprinkles. Oh my. Rumor has it that a couple of pretty special kids are having a birthday tomorrow. They are crazy excited about being able to share cupcakes with all of the kids in their classes, so I couldn’t let them down. The treats are baked, frosted,
packed up and waiting to go to school tomorrow.
While I was at it, I decided it was a good idea to bake the actual cake as well. That too, is now complete with frosting and decorations. You know those little candy letters you can buy that are either fun shapes or spell out Happy Birthday? Well, I know I picked some of those up, but I can’t for the life of me find them. I can hear them laughing at me, probably because they are right under my nose. Still, no luck. If my very talented cake decorating sister-in-law lived a little bit closer, I probably would have asked her to help me, but as it was, I had to wing it with a tube of white frosting and no candy letters. It’s the thought that counts… right? I certainly hope so.
Normally I tend to make homemade goodies, but tonight I thought it safer to go with box mixes. For those of you who remember my chocolate “pucks” or Nutella cookie disaster, you probably agree that it was a good choice. Either
way, the house smells like a yummy bakery, and if it weren’t for the fact that my belly is full from all the bowl licking I had to do, I would probably be in the kitchen right now devouring cupcakes.
All that is left to do is wrap some presents. Oh, and clean the kitchen, but I am going to hold off on that in case the dish fairy gets bored tonight while I am sleeping. If not, then I can rest assured that the disaster zone that was once a kitchen will still be waiting for me in the morning.
But for now, I best get wrapping. It is already past my bedtime, and I’ve got some celebrating to do tomorrow.
