Look at this beautiful creation. This has to be the prettiest cupcake I've ever seen in my life.
And it's extra large. You probably can't tell by the picture, but it's twice the size of a regular cupcake, and was made from scratch.
When it's a child's birthday, their parents often send in something sweet to celebrate it. We are always getting little visitors to the office, offering their cupcakes and telling us today is their birthday.
And please don't tell them this, but although I always accept their offerings, I rarely eat them. It's not just the caloric bounty of the little devils, it's that they don't look (or taste, I'm sure) like THIS!!
My friend, the art teacher, came in to visit at the end of the day and she took one look at this cupcake and pronounded that it could be in the movies. It's a movie star cupcake.
It was the talk among everyone at school this afternoon.
And to think this little girl whose birthday was today is only in the 5th grade. This means we get many more years of awesome deliciousness and layers on our hips.
And yes, in case you're wondering, it tasted even better than it looked, if that was possible.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
