Early one morning last week, I was excited to see a picture message of a pan full of cupcakes come across my phone.
I know that the sight of cupcakes excites me, but the joy is even greater when others remember my love for them. After receiving the message, I jokingly replied, “Are you bringing those to the office”. To my great surprise, I get a call later in the day, saying that my cupcake is awaiting me! Nothing excites me more than knowing I’m about to have a cupcake!
My friend and co-worker, Casey brings up the Halloween cupcake that she and her two little girls, Taylor (7) and Riley (4) made the night before. Taylor and Riley, my “adopted” nieces specifically picked out one of their homemade, hand-decorated, Halloween cupcakes for me. Just for me!
The cupcake was a delicious vanilla cake with Halloween sprinkles dotted throughout. Orange vanilla frosting topped off the cake, and Halloween ghosts and bats completed the look.
