Would you like some cupcake with your cupcake?April 26, 2009 at 5:46 PM | Posted in cupcakes | 34 Comments

Yesterday I spent most of my afternoon baking, dipping and melting chocolate. I remember getting out all the ingredients and materials for my cupcake pop order – 40 Hello Kitty and 40 cupcake pops – and immediately started second guessing myself.
At $1 a pop (no pun intended), I realized at that moment, I did not charge enough. To be honest they take time, effort, steady hands and dipping skills. Some of which do not come naturally for me. But after my initial grumbling about a 4 year old little girl that swindled me with her cute pigtails and “Pwetty pwease Miss Cwara”, I knew I couldn’t back out for fear of said birthday girl’s wrath. Have you ever been the subject of a little girl’s wrath? Trust me. You don’t wanna be. *shudder*
Thankfully after the first few pops, it became almost second nature (although not quite as perfect as Bakerella) and my mind started to wander. I get ideas. Sometimes they are illegal ideas like: I wonder if pot cupcakes would be just as potent as pot brownies? Sometimes they are evil scientist genius ideas like: What if I garnish a cupcake with another cupcake?
That’s worth repeating.
Garnish a cupcake with ANOTHER cupcake?
I think I just opened some delicious time portal.
There’s no such thing as too much of a good thing when it comes to cupcakes.
Happy 4th Birthday Alyssa!
Enjoy it while you can b/c before you know it you’re 20-something going on 30-something and contemplating the importance of having the number of candles on the cake that reflect your actual age. <— The following statement is not based on real events.
