Last Friday night, my phone buzzed and a text message from my neighbor flashed across the screen:
Hey i wanted 2 thank u for all the treats this year. If ur ever bk in town or so cal give me a ring. Hope u enjoy the cupcakes
Wow, they baked me cupcakes, how sweet! I thought. And how did they know I was craving cake?? Not five minutes earlier, I had decided to walk to Safeway for a slice of chocolate cake with thick fudgy frosting!
When I unlocked the front door, a plain white plastic grocery bag hung swinging from the door handle. I would’ve thought they’d just put them on a paper plate… I peered inside and gasped.
A tin of four gourmet cupcakes. Not one, not two, not three, but four. Expensive lovely cupcakes. Just for me. Aww!!
And of course, when you give a girl some cupcakes…
She’s going to sample each and every one! And then she’ll decide that she wants to recreate the cupcakes herself. But where to start?
Classic red velvet?
Chocolate with mint buttercream?
Coconut with a chocolate drizzle?
Or vanilla filled and topped with (absolutely addicting) butterscotch buttercream?
Such a hard decision… But stay tuned for my renditions!
And most importantly, a humongous THANK YOU to my super sweet neighbors!!
