24 delicious cupcakes made using the Magnolia Bakery cookbook Kelly sent for Christmas. Baked in the pans she sent for my birthday! And then oh so carefully loaded into my cupcake caddies for transport to the party.
In order to avoid a near collision, Veto hit the brakes on the way to the party. Turns out, no cupcake caddy can protect the most heavily frosted handheld cakes from trauma:
Needless to say, I was un-hap-py. Prone to drama at the best of times, I almost didn't even take them into the party. I mean, why spend five hours baking these festive little frosting piles from scratch and then produce them as smooshy lumps? WWMD? (What would Martha do?)
We took them inside. At least they tasted delicious. We managed to salvage one of the white-chocolate-dipped cupcakes for a photo op with the guest of honour, Darling. You see that smirk on my brother's face? He's loving this.
I may get a chance to redeem myself, Darling is considering PhD programs. This calls for more cupcakes!
